Midpointness is an evolving project which seeks to equate itself along the lines of a conceptual model of the cosmic. Over the course of 4 weeks, this group exhibition, featuring works by 27 UK and international artists will change and evolve, grow and diminish, pulsate through the works of the artists and the participation of the audience. Curatorial control will, at times be handed over to Gallery staff and exhibition visitors, both live and remote. Through this egalitarian, hierarchy-free approach, Midpointness will seek to explore the nature of the artist, the exhibition, the audience and the work of art.

Midpointness is an evolving curatorial and artistic project that explores ways in which works of art might be understood as ‘being in the midst’; a place W. T. J. Mitchell has usefully described as an “inescapable zone of transaction”. 

When is something finished? When might something begin? Midpointness explores these questions through a performative process of exhibition making in which artists and curators are present throughout. The project will begin with an exhibition of work by selected artists, which is then dismantled and constantly reconstructed, re-imagined, re-classified and augmented throughout the exhibition by curators, artists, students and gallery visitors.

H Project Space, Bangkok - 5th June - 6th July 2014

(detail) is a new exhibition curated by Andrew Bracey, which features the work of 118 international artists, who have each selected a close-up from one of their paintings. These details will be printed and displayed together to give both a tantalising glimpse into the artworks, and create a huge, room sized, collage of images. The exhibition will launch at H-Project Space in Bangkok this summer, before touring to Transition Gallery and The Usher Gallery in the UK later this year. The exhibition is supported by Arts Council England and The University of Lincoln.
