CTRL+SHIFT+SPACE

SATURDAY 18TH OCTOBER 2014

LEVEL 3, 200 ADELAIDE STREET, BRISBANE

‘CTRL + SHIFT + SPACE’ is the outcome of a recent collaborative curatorial project facilitated by Inhouse ARI. Three local writers were invited to generate a shared critical discussion surrounding relevant issues present within local artistic and cultural life. From this dialogue, each writer was asked to curate two artists that reflected the overarching conversation. ‘CTRL + SHIFT + SPACE’ will present the development of the collective curatorial discussion within the context of the exhibition.

The three academics that have been invited to curate the exhibition are:

Lisa Bryan-Brown
Nicola Scott
Tara Heffernan

Bryan-Brown, Scott, and Heffernan have generated a discussion about the control of space in contemporary culture. ‘CTRL + SHIFT + SPACE’ contemplates the current political climate touching on common themes of surveillance, capitalism and security. The office location aligns with questions about the workspace and its culture, highlighting how our ‘time’ is constantly watched and monitored through various activities and programs.
