3_21 2009 Showing

OCAC 3_21 Showing represent another year of Open Contemporary, at the same time it is a time for reviewing and rethinking. 3_21 is not just an exhibit of documents in what has or had happened. It tries to retrace the outline of the studio, also as a gathering site for artists, an interpretation that is closer to reality. How does artists live in the studio? You’ve seen their artwork or art projects, but you haven’t seen them in living? This year OCAC will be showing as part of 3_21 fragments of artists lives, and the events they host.

    An Act of Showing : ARIs and Place

    Set as a material conversation between Artist Run Initiatives (ARIs) and Aboriginal Art Centres in Australia and the Asia-Pacific, this project embodies and provokes conversations about place: How does place matter for artists? Why do ARIs exist in specific places? What is the place of practice?Writer Chris Kraus’s  radical localism points to the importance of the local places of art-making compared to global-centrism noting that ARIs create 'an opportunity to remain in one’s own community and assert an alternative ethos.
