I have a proposal for a silly show in the exhibition Unrealised Potential at Cornerhouse, Manchester opening on friday. You can buy the rights to curate the exhibition should you desire, pop along to the gallery or to this weblink for info on how to do it.
Artists include Mike Chavez-Dawson, Sam Ely & Lynn Harris, Gavin Wade, Brian Reed, Len Horsey, RELAX.
Unrealised Potential is the incorporation of Mike Chavez-Dawson's Potential Hits 2005 into a volume of Unrealised Projects, further developing the creative potential of the unrealised in the artist's practice and for an audience's engagement with the work.
Unrealised Potential is an art project as exhibition which will allow gallery-goers the opportunity to become producers themselves by purchasing the right to realise a leading artist's dream project. For this multi-part exhibition artist/curator Mike Chavez-Dawson re-visits his original project Potential Hits, 2005, and working in collaboration with Sam Ely and Lynn Harris combines it with ongoing work Unrealised Projects to form Volume 6: Unrealised Potential.
All volumes of Unrealised Projects will be on display in the gallery, alongside the first comprehensive display of Strategic Questions 2002-2010 curated by Gavin Wade, with a new commission from RELAX (chiarenza & hauser & co) in response to the question What is Wealth? Plus Len Horsey & Brian Reed (who interpret Liam Gillick's Palanta De Anodizado).
The show also includes a number of invited contributions from over seventy other artists, including Richard Wilson, Tom Morton, Cecilia Wee, David Shrigley, Simon Patterson, and many more.
