The Portable, the Dissolvable, the Transmissible: migratory practices of exposition

This research project looks into the moment of the 1970s, pivotal within the visual arts practices for shifting meaning and substance of the artwork in connection to a changing role of labour within and beyond Western societies in their new imperial and capitalist ambitions. Case studying a number of exhibitions in Scandinavia and elsewhere which challenged methodologies of display, artmaking and precarious living conditions, these expositions questioned how and why work as a concept enters the exhibition as a form.

Antonio Cataldo is a writer and a curator and currently employed as the artistic director of Fotogalleriet Oslo.
