A_M O-O, Arcadia_Missa Open Office
A programme of exhibitions, talks and events located in a research-production project at Arcadia_Missa Gallery.
at Arcadia Missa
Arcadia_Missa Open Office
A_M O-O is an installation that provides a physical exhibition space, which is active, productive and attempts to create a critical context for artworks, praxis and projects to momentarily sit within. The mutating structure instigates its ‘critical context’ via its compaction of research, production and display into one space; and artist, curator, writer and visitor into one participant. Contemporary artists from around the world will present work within O-O.
Some exhibitions or events will take over the space and disassemble the scene, others will utilise it as a space for production and some will work with it as a unique site for presentation. Alongside the exhibitions and events programme A_M will be working in O-O, continuing to run the space and work on its publications. This expanded, collaborative practice on one site is an experiment in translating the work/presentation/viewing platforms of much contemporary online content into the gallery space creating a working environment which responds to, critiques and develops our uses of these forms and structures.
The first event on Friday will be the bare installation laid open for inspection/Bring Your Own Booze office party. O-O will then open fully over July, with the first O-O takeover by Matt Drage and Iain Ball, culminating in their event on Saturday 7 July.
