Looking Aside

Looking Aside


Looking Aside is a unique exhibition from major artists approaching the question of how to document performance practices that are by definition fleeting and transitory. Rather than looking head-on, these artists have worked sideways, creating new artworks that sit alongside the events they record or suggest. The results hover between documentation, performance and visual art, and are startling, unexpected and genuinely beautiful.
