A shift in time and space. The Articulate Project Space in Lodz

The Articulate Project Space is an initiative of a group of Australian visual artists who have a studio or some other connection in common with 497 Parramatta Road, Leichhardt (Sydney). These artists’ diverse practices share an interest in the relationships that artworks form with their various locations. The Articulate Project Space combines features of a studio and a gallery. The exhibition "Project Space Project", prepared for the 4th Art and Documentation Festival by Margaret Roberts and Sue Callanan from the Articulate Project Space, was presented in May and in the beginning of June at the Biblioteka Gallery (Lodz, Poland).

Its curator, Hugh Mulholland, stated: The work is open-ended and whilst collaborative, elements of their individual artistic practice can be detected. The idea of open-endedness has existed as long as there was poetry and art. It is not something that can be excluded from any art process, although it came to the special attention during the Modernism and its pressure on the participation of viewers. It was expected to work as shared responsibility for meanings of each work of art and a protection against attacks issued from older traditional positions. That seems to be still its valid role while the international art elite moves the openness of art in another direction by extending inherited art system.
