Learning Site was founded as a research-led and site-related art initiative with the aim of exploring ways of making art that did assume the circulatory institutions of the museum, biennial festival, transnational art fair and market as the grounding reality of art practice. Luther’s work has therefore explored the proposition that what an artist exhibits is a small fraction of the learning, knowledge and intuition that drives its production. In order to make any art, a diverse and complex system of coming-to-knowledge, sifting and deciding must take place. While that process is necessary, it is not always coherent or easy to define. The exhibitionary art object may be a part of that practice, but no more consumes or defines that practice than curators or viewers are able to.
