It’s a pop-up show in the CG05 corridor (near the part-timer’s base room) in which each artist takes one locker and curates an exhibition in the 30 x 30 x 43 cm cubby. It is a response to the locker as a space, a container, a set of limitations, boundaries, a wish granted, or some other response.
Of course, there are only 20 lockers and almost 30 people in part-time 1 & 2 MA Fine Art so this might also turn into an exercise in negotiation, compromise, and teamwork!
What I propose is 1-2 (or more) people choose a locker, and put an object in or installation… and then place a padlock on the door (for safety). During the exhibition, the lock is enigmatically left on or perhaps the door is left wide open for uninhibited viewing.
Participating artists: Paul Abbott, Dalia Anime, Caroline Brossard, Bijan Daneshmand, Eldi Hablo, Peter Jordan, Shadi Mahsa, Teresa Paiva, Celia Peachey, Yan Petris, Christine Stewart, Alex Roberts, Louise Wheeler, Michael Williams, and curated by Kelise Franclemont.
