New Curatorial Project


A to/from B

a year-long silent conversation
WAGON is delighted to announce its very first curatorial project A to/from B, a year-long art/cultural interchange project launched on the 1st September 2014.

The project invites two contemporary artists - one from overseas and the other based locally (Aberdeen) - to a collaborative exhibition with each other in Aberdeen in September 2015. The invited artists, however, share nothing in common and are given no information about each other - not even their names - to begin with. The only thing the invited artists know is that they have different cultural backgrounds, and in a year’s time, they will be meeting and collaboratively making an art exhibition in Aberdeen.

Prior to their physical meeting and exhibition in September 2015, the artists are making a lengthways 'silent conversation' via an online platform a-to-from-b.tumblr.com for a year from the 1st September 2014 to the 31st August 2015. This will operate as a simple visual image correspondence - only posting one visual image at a time in response to each other's image in turn. No language or textual communication is used.

By using a format where only the most minimal communication is possible, A to/from B aims to explore how interactions with unknown others/locations can come to shape our own ideas and thought processes. It also aims to provoke a discussion on how our aesthetic perspective can change or stay the same as a result of intellectual/physical interchanges with others whose culture or background is foreign to us.

 

We are planning to generate monthly e-newsletters over the year to report on how this longitudinal, experimental interchange project goes and would like to keep you updated. If you wish to subscribe to our e-newsletter list, please do subscribe here.
