Publication evaluation and preparing for assessment.
A. How have you resolved your major publication? Justify your particular choices relating to its publication.
The publication was a mixed media, multi sensory exhibition held in a former Victorian holding cells complex in Plymouth over two weeks in July 2019.
Guiding its curation was a statement by curator supremo Hans Ulrich Obrist that:“ an exhibition is not an illustration. … it does not, ideally, represent the thing it purports to be ‘about’ … Exhibitions, I believe, can and should go beyond simple illustration or representation. They can produce reality themselves.” (Obrist p168)
With these ideals in mind and with inspirational exhibitions by Anna Boghiguian(Cardiff Artes Mundi 8 2018) and Edmund Clark (Birmingham “In Place of Hate” 2018) fresh in my mind, I embraced the space I had with its serendipitous historical links but some limitations, and spread my wings.
