Art Out: Art in Odd Places
Art in Odd Places aims to stretch the boundaries of communication in the public realm by presenting artworks in all disciplines outside the confines of traditional public space regulations. AiOP reminds us that public spaces function as the epicenter for diverse social interactions and the unfettered exchange of ideas. The theme BODY explores agency, politics and status of the “other” in an urban environment, through various media including performance, installation, sculpture, photography, sound, video and text.
This year, forty five selected local, national and international participants challenge notions and societal constructs of gender, age and beauty, analyze contemporary ideas of self, death, sex, viscera and health, explore issues of otherness, body image, language, memory and belonging through staging of multimedia interdisciplinary projects, movement and participatory works, artifacts and ephemera, considering issues of exclusion, displacement and absence in the current discourse.
