Dialogues #1



‘Dialogues: A Hybrid Art Project’ is based on the exploration of hybrid spaces of exchange and art interventions that blend physical and virtual realities in new configurations. The project promotes notions of connectivity via art and explores notions of interaction and mediation that transcend physical/virtual dichotomies and private/public conceptions of space.  

The first instance of this project in July 2022 sought to instigate a dialogue between eight independent artists. The participating artist exchanged artworks to experience them in their own personal space for a period of 10 days (their home, studio, a familiar space, or simply where they were). During that period the artworks were publicly available on this site through relevant documentation and live streaming (see windows below). Alongside the virtual exhibition, the project involved a series of one-to-one online encounters between the artists to enable further interactions around the shared ecology of the project’s platform.

The first exhibition was accompanied by an effort to reflect on the outcomes of this first instance of the project. 
Part of this reflection, was the decision to allow the project to grow by inviting more artists to form their own dialogues, by replicating the project as is described in The Formula, which can be found on the menu of this site. This way, we would like to create a framework of more opportunities for connecting via art.
