Featuring [ SPACE] residency artists Claire TOLAN and Jeremy HUTCHISON
AG0RA_In_RETE_01 is the pilot version of SPACE’s new distributed curatorial framework conceived as a responsive platform for the exposition, celebration and interrogation of the creative process and process-led practices. Derived nominally from a networked, decentralised public forum, the AG0RA_In_RETE series casts process as fluid cultural agent, a negotiator of value and the catalyst for public debate. Whether adopted and orchestrated across multiple organisations, led by a single cultural agent, or remotely channelled through a networked group, the AG0RA_In_RETE model acts as a responsive, choreographed platform for knowledge exchange and critical discourse in response to artistic process. AGORA_IN_RETE_01 features work in process and critical dialogue between the inaugural Goethe-Institut and SPACE Perlin Noise sound artist in residence Claire Tolan and This Time With FEELing resident artist Jeremy Hutchison. Positioned within the context of “First Thursdays”, AGORA_IN_RETE_01 aims to disrupt the industry standard Open Studio /Private View format. By embracing a post-studio attitude in casting the site of artistic production as a malleable framework for a live, distributed networked forum AGORA_In_RETE seeks to stimulate porous critical discussion and investigative friction around process and what it means to make process the subject of display and exploration. Responding to recent changes in the traditional studio model and seeking to make public new modes of collaborative process-led practices.
