A6 Dialogue Two Preview Evening

 

Thanks to everyone who made our preview evening for A6 Dialogue Two last Friday and to Andy Broadey & Simon Blackmore from Kitchen Table Theory who broke contemporary art out of the gallery space and onto the streets of Levenshulme to launch the Levenshulme Contemporary Art Centre. Read more about Kitchen Table Theory on Twitter & on their blog.

We are interested in deploying conventions of gallery design within abandoned sites because:

1) Art that is made according to convention is affirmative, whereas art that questions convention is critical;

2) Gallery conventions guide us to ask ‘What is it?’, whilst commercial sites lead us to ask, ‘What is it for, and what can I get for it?’

3) The highest degrees of abstraction and the most pressing political issues already exist in car parks and patches of weeds.
