Exhibition:

"Entertaining the environment"
Erin Manning, Riki-Metisse Marlow, Laura Woodward, Bryan Cera, Tony Falla, Nathaniel Stern, Kent Wilson, Andrew Goodman


Opening: Tuesday 30 October, 6-8pm
Dates: 30 October-17 November 2012

'Entertaining the environment' brings together a group of Australian and international artists to explore the concept that an artwork might reject a contract of exchange with a viewer. Instead of accepting the entertainment of the audience as an obligatory, primary relationship, this exhibition proposes a more modest ambition – the artwork’s acquisition of agency for the purposes of entertaining themselves and/or their environment.

This does not imply a nihilistic denial of the possibility of engaging the viewer but rather that any such engagement sits in excess to the aim of an immersion in the field of unfolding experience, and the exploration of the non-human scales of attention and timeframes within an art event.

Within the exhibition the artists explore a number of techniques that question the position of the spectator, the role of technology in art and the possibilities for a more complex and intertwined bodily relation in the creation of an art event.

The exhibition at the Bus Projects is the third iteration of the exhibition, following shows at the Phoenix Gallery at Deakin University and the La Trobe Visual Arts Centre.
