In continuing projects we find new dimensions, decisions are informed and we move on.
Continuing on from three Melbourne biennials all of which have ignored the fundamental underpinning of a biennial (that it happens every two years) and two of which have also ignored links to institutions and place, the Third/Fourth Melbourne Biennial aims to engage all past Melbourne Biennials and other projects generated either side of them.
The Second/First artist facilitated Biennial focused on an artist-curated model outside of the institution and state, compensating somewhat for Melbourne’s lack of a second biennial, and for the lack of affordable rental space in Melbourne to start dialogues. The Second/Third Biennial stood as a bookend to a two-year artist facilitated project (Y3K) engaged with a local and international conversation, and refined focuses. This upcoming biennial will engage a more amorphous construction: tying up loose ends, reinvestigating and continuing various overlaps, collaborations, conversations and relationships.
Spatial Dialogues and the Boat People Association, as part of SHIBUYA: UNDERGROUND STREAMS, are holding a mobile treasure hunt for art! Keitai Mizu artists are wondering: would you like to join in?
When: June 2-4, 2013
Where: Shibuya, Tokyo
We’ve placed various water-related creatures and objects made by Australian and Japanese artists around the site.
Participants will be given 15 minutes to take camera phone pictures of the sea creatures whose habitat is Tokyo. You must then distinguish between the real and imaginary, local and foreign objects and send ONLY the images of Tokyo-related sea creatures to the Spatial Dialogues Twitter account via camera phone apps like Instagram.
The winner will be the one who correctly guesses the most objects in 15 minutes.
We will also feature a version of the game using Tokyo joao chizu to discover the underground rivers.
Images will then be uploaded to the Spatial Dialogues website.
For more information, or to RSVP, email us at email@example.com
We’re looking forward to watching your stories and adventures unfold!
