|The underlying theme of the
2013 exhibition programme will be dialogue. This will take
a variety of forms, both formal and imaginary. For example, it might
be a dialogue between the works of two artists; between two aspects
of one artist’s work; between the work of art and the gallery
space, or between the work of art and its wider context (both contemporary
and historical). It might also be a conversation, or an exchange of
views – perhaps in the hope of ultimately reaching agreement.
Underpinning the theme of dialogue is the belief that art is a form
of communication as well as expression and that a gallery, even a
commercial one, should be a location in which a discussion can take
place about what art is and how it functions; somewhere to have an
exchange of ideas.
To help facilitate the dialogue theme, the gallery will be divided
into two spaces, which will be allowed to function in different ways
depending on what is installed within them.
