The central framework of this exhibition is spatial context. It determines a coherence among the diverse artwork displayed, informed by the global origins of the artists and the local production of their respective work. This invokes the Savoy Shopping Centre itself, a uniqueplatform facilitating interaction between the local and global. The concept of the show asked for a creative response and play on what the Savoy was, is, and could be. Accessibility was, therefore, the main point of reference to ensure that this exhibition could be displayed in a functional space. This produced a diverse arrangement of aesthetic and conceptual forms contributed by a large roster of artists.
