Exhausted Academies

Exhibition

30 Jun 2017 - 05 Jul 2017

Curated by Nottingham Trent University Visiting Professor Henk Slager, Exhausted Academies is a multi-screen exhibition that asks how the relation between artistic research and the art academy can be rethought.

The project Exhausted Academies asks how might we rethink the relation between artistic research and the art academy, specifically through a critique of the ‘exhausting’ achievement-oriented and instrumentalised tendencies of the contemporary neoliberal institution, and a return to a ‘verticalist’ perspective that ‘makes space’ for attention and concentration; for experiment, novel questions and speculation; for reflexivity, new modes of imagination; for an open-ended form of differential thinking that values not-knowing, the singular, the affective, the transgressive, and the unforeseen. 

Artists of the exhibition are: Isabella Gresser and Byung-Chul Han, Antoni Muntadas, Tiong Ang, Ane Hjort Guttu, Rene Francisco, Inci Eviner.

This event is part of Doing Deceleration Symposium at Nottingham Contemporary on Tue 4 July, 10am-1pm / 3-6pm (at NTU) More >>
