The Exhibition Bootcamp Workshop seeks to extend the artistic process into curation and exhibition planning. Four artists (Karin Payne, Lucy Shaiken, Krishna Desai & Richard King) came together for two consecutive weekends of discussions, collaboration, and hands-on installation. Through this time together, they built their understanding and skills in the complexities of exhibit design, but more importantly developed an appreciation for their fellow artists and the qualities and motivations within each artistic practice. “Circumstances” is the result of their time together.
The group developed ways to build an exhibition experience from the work itself, offering a conversation among the numerous pieces they brought together.
An elaborate process of conversation and testing relationships with pieces on a single wall eventually grew to encompass the entire room.
