CONVERSATIONS IN SHADOW ARCHITECTURE is a group exhibition curated by Ineke Dane that interrogates the built environment through the lens of Critical Spatial Practice – a theory that seeks to facilitate understanding the political, social and cultural potential and purpose of architecture. Multidisciplinary artists, composers, architects and writers from Australia and overseas will be invited to respond.
The theory of Critical Spatial Practice came to the fore at the time of the Arab Spring and the global Occupy movements. Tahrir Square and the revolution it aided is an oft-referred case study. It is as relevant today as ever with Black Lives Matter and the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic. A partner exhibition of ‘Conversations in Shadow Architecture’ will also be held at Metro Arts Brisbane from 1 October – 31 October 2021.
The DOMINIK MERSCH GALLERY CURATOR AWARD invites guest curators to explore their own perceptions and expertise in a unique exhibition opportunity at DMG. Ineke Dane is an award-winning curator based in Brisbane, Australia. She has a background in contemporary art theory, law, policy, photography and journalism; with each of these disciplines informing a thought-provoking and conceptually rigorous practice.
