Exploring the interplay between the artist, the viewer and the location setting. Housed: seeks to explore the interplay between the artist, the viewer and the location setting… the latter being a ‘display space’ within an art school context. Who are we? Who are they? And what role does the environment holding the exhibition play in this relationship? The collaboration (Chelsea MAFA & MACC students) will provide both groups an opportunity to address the Meta Artist/ Curator position. Housed: seeks to reveal what remains dormant and under-exposed within us in response to the traditional and institutional framing of the socio-political artistic practice. The premise of this exhibition proposes a chain of perspectives that challenge the ‘occupancy’ inside the regimented frameworks that artists continually try to support, intervene and critically address.
