Symposium at The Showroom Gallery featuring artists who had participated in the year-long project Exhibition as Medium
The speaker Janna Graham really stood out during the packed day, talking about ‘parasites like us- studies of the possible in impossible times’
NESTA, the innovation research organisation, has shown that artists and creative sector professionals (who earn so much less for so much longer than other sectors) set up the prototype for wider economic development.
This means that our current actions, and what we agree to are influencing the wider model.
Consider the service you provide and what you accept in exchange for it.
When are we the parasite? and when are we the host? see what we contribute, and where the support comes from.
An exhibition is a moment of consolidation rather than an end point.
