Other Rooms

Beeston, Leeds | 17-25 January 2015

Each artist has reacted to the physical characteristics of Basement Arts Project’s gallery environment and has reconsidered the life of the art object when it is contextualised outside the ideological space of the ‘white cube’. BasementArtsProject’s ‘Other Rooms’ acts as a fulcrum where artworks expand into a notional consideration of space beyond the modern tradition of the art gallery. This analysis of alternative spaces suggests a reflection on the vocabulary of territories, institutions, boundaries, and their related systems of inclusion and exclusion, representation and de-presentation.
