The workshop centres around the artwork display at the exhibition Extravagant Bodies: Extravagant Love in the context of the city of Split. The participants will reflect on the alternative and diverse ways of presenting works of art in the context of a city, which is outside the usual gallery context. The workshop will aim to observe the topic of art, artwork display and architecture as a unique conceptual unit.
The workshop will address the topics of the interconnectedness of the artwork display and artistic work. Does it: enrich or ignore its surroundings; add or reduce value; invite or snub the audience; does it contrast or blend with the surroundings, etc. Does a positive or negative reaction influence the dissemination of its intended message? The workshop will also interrogate the boundaries between the artwork and its surrounding space.
This full day workshop consists of a short introductory lecture on producing the exhibition held in Zagreb (conceptual design, finances, set up), followed by time for independent work, free time and the final process presentation.
To participate in the workshop, you will need a laptop (with Photoshop or similar photo editing software) and camera (a cell phone will suffice).
