Beyond Exhausted opening weekend events
Saturday 19 November, 11-2pm:
Performative lecture by Caitlin Patane
Curator talk by Sophie Davis
For Beyond Exhausted, Fayen d’Evie and Caitlin Patane have developed a collaborative framework around the Re-print project, a curated series from independent publishing initiative 3-ply. The Re-print project introduces out-of-date artist publications to a contemporary audience. On the opening weekend of the exhibition, Patane will present a performative lecture that combines fragments from these Re-prints with her own work and thoughts around collaboration, time and duration in relation to this project.
Curator, Sophie Davis, will also present her perspective on the framework around Beyond Exhausted and the ideas of independent publishing and the reprint.
3-ply is an independent publishing initiative that focuses on publication, writing, editing and translation as an extension of art practice. In exhibition settings, 3-ply operates as a shifting collaborative, investigating artist-led publishing as an experimental site for the creation, mutation, dispersal, and archiving of texts. Recent exhibitions include: Endless Circulation: TarraWarra Biennial, Healesville; Habits and Customs..., Kadist Art Foundation, Paris; (2015) 3rd Ural Industrial Biennial, Yekatarinburg; The Material Turn, Margaret Lawrence Gallery, Melbourne; and Just as Money is the Paper, the Gallery is the Room, Osage Art Foundation, Shanghai. 3-ply is directed by Fayen d’Evie, an artist originally from Christchurch and now based in rural Victoria, Australia.
