Pursue Other Avenues
Pursue Other Avenues is an experiment which takes the form of an open and public "exhibition making workshop". By showing the negotiation, research, and dialogue that typically finishes before the vernissage this experiment aims to give participants an understanding of artists and their work, greater to that of seeing a mere static display of material products. This experiment views all participants as producers, audience, critics, and curators, and with the aid of Isabelle Krieg, Clare Kenny, and Flurin Bisig everyone present will contribute to the development of the exhibition process. This experiment will display the traditionally private stages of an exhibition—doing away with the traditionally public stage entirely. Contrary to most exhibitions, Pursue Other Avenues will not be pure documentation of prior actions, discussions, or collaborations, but the exhibition will be the discourse and connections as they are created. The exhibition becomes flexible and public, and by the time it ‘matures’ it will not then be arrested and stagnate, but this will signal its end.
