Discussions in Exhibitions
Wang Xu: Garden of Seasons
Saturday, March 9, 12:30pm
Vincent Price Art Museum & Cascades Park
Discussions in Exhibitions opens a discussion on the day the exhibition Wang Xu: Garden of Seasons closes. The contents and levels of negotiation cited here–municipal, sculptural, iconographical, locational and temporal– encourage sifting through the dynamics of a project simultaneously static and non-static, unrealized and re-conceived, negatively in-situ and ostensibly displaced from multiple sites.
This discussion will begin at "Cascades Park" (also known as "Heritage Falls Park") 1.5 miles north of the museum on Atlantic Blvd at 12:30pm followed by the brief commute down the road to reconvene at the museum exhibit around 1pm.
Discussions in Exhibitions has been invested since 2010 in considering ticketless exhibitions, and their limits, through publicly initiated discussions occurring from within. As a sporadic series of unsanctioned gatherings, the aim continues to be providing opportunities for situational dialogue on the choices which compose shows and characterize the work inside them, stimulated by the diverse perspectives of those in attendance. By extension an inquiry into, and representation of, what is public in these spaces becomes tangible in the process.
Discussions in Exhibitions is part of the Southland Institute public events series. Discussion open to all.
