Exhibition Opening: Video Lounge
Curator: Joe Citizen
Far from being 'empty' space, the white cube gallery exists as a testament to the orthodoxy of 'western' visual culture's elitist origins. Since Duchamp however, this contextualising mechanism that translates objects into art has become increasingly problematic. The Video Lounge epitomises pop culture: come along and disregard the convention of the white cube gallery protocols to watch mainly (New Zealand) short films, video clips and other forms of video art. Kick back and relax! Consume the society of the spectacle at your convenience.
