ART AND REALITY AND THE REALITY OF ART
Hopefully by having this more approachable and interactive exhibition it will allow more dialogue about the Art. The visitor can feel confident to ask questions in an informal manner within the venue with no pressure to understand or feel intimidated by the artwork of space.
“An in-between situation that linked art, design, architecture, bringing people into a dialogue.”Hans Ulrich Obrist, Ways of Curating, 2014
Obrist quotes Duchamp saying that the viewer does half of the work – this is so true, and if the viewer can then become part of the work then their understanding of the pieces will be made so much easier. We want to make it as easy as possible to the visitor to understand and appreciate not only the work but also the venue and the experience as a whole, so we need to find ways to make it fun, relaxed and pressure free for the viewers.
“Effectively visitors could curate their own show”
“A locus for crossing between Art and Life”Hans Ulrich Obrist, Ways of Curating, 2014
An exhibition space should not be limited to just the artwork on show, it should be a collision of the senses and a joining of Art and Reality, the Reality of Art.
