Call & Response
The Upstairs Studios
February 2, 2018 6:00 pm - February 2, 2018 9:00 pm
The Spare Parts Mini Art Museum takes over Flax Studio for the First Friday Artwalk in February. The Spare Parts MINI ART MUSEUM (MAM), is a travelling exhibition space that challenges the idea of “museum as destination.” As an art-for-all initiative, the MINI ART MUSEUM takes contemporary art exhibitions to schools and communities around the world to make the fine arts experience more accessible.
Call & Response Curatorial Statement:
In music, Call and Response is the succession of two distinct phrases played by different people, where the second phrase is heard as a direct commentary or response to the first. In the same way, a curator may formulate a “call for artist” and artists respond by creating work to be exhibited.
In this retrospective exhibition are selected works from the MINI ART MUSEUM’s permanent collection. After four years, eleven exhibitions, and thousands of visitors worldwide, the MINI ART MUSEUM continues to serves as a platform for artists and curators to activate dialogue about topics they value. By visiting the museum, you are called to join the conversation. What will be your response?
