    Description

    Hubs and Fictions, a touring forum on current art and imported remoteness

    When cultural hubs are increasingly suspended between local situations and broader milieus of displacement in a globalised setting, what is the potential of fiction? How do we articulate the relations that play out between gallery presentations, institutional aspirations and the ways they intersect with fantasies of elsewhere? And if exhibition making is inherently a form of narrative, what kinds of fiction or reality can it stage?

    Bringing together contributors from the fields of artistic, curatorial and cinematic practice the forum takes place as an exchange in stages at three venues across the UK.
