PLAYTIME show #1
For art institutions, the need to be visible, quantitatively as well as qualitatively, becomes ever more pressing. But what is the value of that visibility, K_nstvl__ wonders, and what innovative strategies exist to reach audiences? For PLAYTIME, K_nstvl___ invited over twenty experimental project spaces from both the Netherlands and abroad, to present their visions within an elastic exhibition concept.
During PLAYTIME, it is time that is divided, not space. On Sunday, May 21, every invited project space will create a very temporary presentation in the Royal Foyer of the Stadsschouwburg. This elastic exhibition will unfold for the audience during the day, like the scenes of a play. The mediation between art, artist, organization and audience thus takes on a new meaning, for the entire ecology around exhibiting is visible.
During PLAYTIME, Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee invites the participants at our table in the SSBA Salon for a series of talks on their practices and its similarities, differences and inspirations.
