The Exhibition is in Transit vol. 1 : Event
On September 29 we are hosting a digital reading group focusing on The Exhibition is in Transit and the thematics of GIBCA 2021 - The Ghost Ship and the Sea Change. Below you will find a free pdf version of the reader and Zoom link for the session.
The Exhibition is in Transit is an ongoing series of publications developed by Ephemeral Care and edited by Joe Rowley. The first volume of the series was produced in collaboration with USA based platform fLoromancy which offers month-long digital residencies for artists, curators and projects.
The Exhibition is in Transit, as a concept, focuses on the changing dynamics within exhibition making which have resulted - directly or indirectly - from the ongoing COVID pandemic. As we see it these go hand-in-hand with wider access to digital formats and platforms, new technologies such as AR and VR and shifts in mainstream institutional and funding attitudes towards various media's relevance and acknowledgement.
Ephemeral Care as an organisation focuses on ethics, practice and structures in artist-run initiatives. With that in mind, The Exhibition is in Transit also shows a strong desire as a series to frame its content through the lens of artist-run. All of the contributors have some background with artist-run, independent or self-organised projects and that experience has impacted the ways they approach exhibition and exhibition-making.
This session forms part of Ephemeral Care’s programme for GIBCA Extended 2021. The idea of this session is to put the contributions from The Exhibition is in Transit together with the contexts of The Ghost Ship and the Sea Change. Through doing this we hope to open up a discussion around the exhibition that forms the core of this year's biennial and think about how it could impact on and develop exhibition strategies in Göteborg over the coming years.
Please feel free to join us for the session September 29 2021 15.00 – 17.00 (CEST) via the following Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85646705274

Ephemeral Care focuses on ethics, practice and strategies in artist-led and self-organised projects.
