What is the relationship between an exhibition & its publication? A representation? A part of it or merely an extension of it?
- Exhibitions = the act of showing & telling, of constructive narratives that elide distinctions between words & images, or between artifacts & artifictions.
- Does it matter how museums narrate, describe, and or otherwise footnote the objects they display?
- Philippe Parneno: What do you believe, your eyes or my words?
- Textualterity: Art, Theory and Textual Criticism
- How texts relate to one another, how they derive or filate from one another, & how they are disseminated in culture.
- Defining the parameters of what constitutes boundaries: where does a poem begin & end? where does an artwork begin & end? How the same poem published in different contexts is both materially & ontologically different?
- Different kinds of representations are inevitable because of the implausibility of re-presenting, & as a means/ process to reach the ‘real’.
- Exhibitions vs Publications:
- Exhibitions are discursive, our movements are unpredictable, not determined by conventions but by peregrinations, unstable, incomplete, uncontained, & uncontainable -> but it’s curated? Thus, we are able to control and manipulate this?
- Publications control movement, word to word, line to line, page to page.
