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).
And the curators just got on with it!
Here Oxana and Fabi are working with placement of Saeideh’s photographs.
Then they move on to re-stage Regan’s video and Joe’s painting.
It takes all four to work on Sarah’s large-scale installation (l-r: Oxana, Fabi, Roberta, and YangYang)
What the curators have done will be a complete surprise to the artists coming in the next day.
