Letters: DAY FOUR (progress)

This image is from "AND THEIR ALLOCATION", a group exhibition that Karen Brummond curated as part of the larger initiative to foster dialogue between academic disciplines.

Karen differentiated this experimental site from other art venues by saying (paraphrased) that we were working in a space that the viewer owned. I have thought about her statement a lot since Wednesday night and how it relates to issues surrounding public art. In doing so, I have concluded that such spaces have greater potential for meaningful collaboration than traditional gallery walls but that they also have a far greater potential for disaster if the trust is broken on either side. I like this challenge.
