“With Institutions Like These…” is a shared space of liminality, an occupation of both flux and transformation for the ways in which we prescribe and intervene into the apparatuses that exhibitions, artworks, audiences and commerce are embedded in. Simultaneously constructing and deconstructing with each artwork, the exhibition utilises in-between moments of institutional display while retaining elements of its suspended provisional character.
Built in the nineteenth century and empty for almost ten years, The Averard Hotel is the exhibition’s site of investigation and play. The exhibition is staged over two floors, unveiling the complexities of commercial development, cultural planning, exhibition-maki
Like hotels, many cultural institutions and sites of production have become temporary spaces of occupation. The format of this exhibition evokes but one of the many unexpected variations of trajectories that oscillate between institutional erasure, ideal presentation, the conditions of artistic production, re-zoning and development and the status quo.
