An exchange is a relationship, it is a relationship held at a distance. To speak of the event rather than the object, attempts to acknowledge this relationship, it indicates a pass over from form to context. This move is not about the elimination of objects as much as the inclusivity of the operations that surround them. Rather than any transparency of means, thinking in terms of the event intimates what might be precluded, what remains opaque and inconstant. This is not what prevents the relationship but what begins the exchange.
EXCHANGE is an exhibition and publication including works by Lynda Benglis, Patricia Lennox-Boyd, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, John Latham, Robert Morris, Hollis Frampton, Ian White and H.D. Curated by Gil Leung.
