Exchange of Gifts
between the artists and the audience
3rd September 2011, 5 pm.
Wroclaw Contemporary Museum,
Bunker at Strzegomski Sq., Wroclaw
What do the the artists want to share with the audience?
What can the audience give the artists?
Gift exchange is an opportunity to share your own work with a selected person. The artists will bring their gifts for the audience, and the members of the audience will present the artists with theirs. In the course of the evening, the exchanged objects will form a 'live' exhibition, which shape will depend on both the artists and the public.
The gifts can be either big or small, funny or nostalgic, they may include peculiarities of all sorts, made or found, surprising in some different way. These may be objects created specially for this occasion or gems plucked from a scrap heap. What counts is the idea and imagination of the participants. A history of an object and a story about its sentimental significance can have an important impact on its value.
Gifts from the audience, chosen by the artists, will be on display throughout a month at the Wroclaw Contemporary Museum, while the artists' gifts will go directly into the hands of their recipients.
We cordially invite you to participate in the event!
