8 April 2015 – Curators rearrange ‘Housed:’ for a fresh view on the show

In a twist on the usual practice, the artists have installed Housed: without curatorial input – for the curators to come in later and test the limits of the concept of the show as well as the relationship between maker and curator, by re-hanging the show, hoping to offer a fresh perspective.

The afternoon session begins with a meeting between the 4 curators and a few of the artists, to revisit the concept (and to provide some technical input on some of the works that may require some instruction/advice).

What the curators have done will be a complete surprise to the artists coming in the next day.
