Show-Off: A Choreography of Artworks

Curated by Rose Davey and Sarah Kate Wilson (Directors of art collective LeandaKateLouise)
Conjuring ideas of a catwalk, cattle market, and auction house, the performed exhibition, Show-Off mobilises sculptures, paintings, drawings in front of a seated audience. Art handlers carry and direct artworks on stage, bringing the procession of works to directly ‘meet’ onlookers. The viewer is relieved of the task of navigation, the exhibition comes to them. All artworks are professionally lit and illuminated, and sometimes accompanied by soundscapes. for a limited time before being carried off stage. The stage has been conceived and made by artist Gary Woodley, and reconfigures into a multitude of arrangements which reflect the perceived display needs of each work.
