You can contribute at any skill level, imagining through drawing, cutting, folding and stitching as well as working with crochet and knitted fabrics.
Sites of Exchange has developed over a five week period extending past dialogues and generating new ones.
Conversation takes many forms and shapes, they grow and develop through a series of improvised inputs that meander, have direction, pace and rhythm. Exhibition making has given space for the artists to visualise, experiment, make new links and formalise new ideas and opportunities.
In particular new alliances have developed with creative writing and cosmology and new opportunities for exhibition and publication formed.
Both the developing exhibition and the methods of working have provoked analysis about the nature of conversation and research. How what might appear as disparate thoughts can trigger new connections and shape new forms.
hope to see you there.
