Members' Exhibition: UNBOXED | DÉBALLÉ (articule past and present)

DEADLINE: January 15, 2020

Exhibition: April 4 - 12, 2020
Opening: April 3, 2020, 7 PM
Install: March 30 - April 3, 2020

2020 will be articule’s 40th anniversary. When articule was founded, it belonged to “the network of parallel galleries” which became today’s artist-run centres. This year’s members’ show invites members past and present to explore the archives of the centre as a starting place for new works. Join us in this effort to retrace, reconsider and remake our networks and histories.

Participating artists are invited to use articule’s archives as inspiration for their submission. While the contents of the archives will be left unchanged, members are invited to draw on their memories as a prompt for writing, performance, intervention, installation, painting, recording, etc. The archives will be available to peruse at set times in early 2020. Participants are also invited to send traces or testimonies of their own experiences with articule in the form of notes, photos, posters, and more.

Please note: this exhibition is for members of articule (past or present) only. If you are not a member, we invite you to become a member and apply for next year’s show.

  • - A short biography (max. 50 words)

  • - A description of how you want to participate; by creating or performing a new work, sending an object to be included, or both (max. 200 words)
