Artists in this exhibition:


The Liquid Archive explores the impact of digital photography on art within the exhibition space.Asking in what ways new image capturing technologies inflect and infect the exhibition space, amid the centuries old phenomena of the collectively produced story of art. Does the ease of production and widely circulated distribution of the image of the exhibition, slipping from laptop to smart phone with increasing speed and fluidity, circumnavigate the need for the exhibition at all?The Liquid Archive is an ever-expanding archive of amateur photographs of exhibitions and artworks collated online. The work will be projected in the project space and acts as a site for further discussion, with artist Nicholas Smith extending an open invitation to all to contribute new images during the exhibition period. Reflecting the dissemination of ideas and knowledge through this process spectators are asked to submit their images of exhibitions to:liquidarchive@relief-press.comand on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr with #liquidarchiveA newly commissioned audio work by Cristina Garrido responds to The Liquid Archive, observing the differing factors that cause the perceptive transformation of the real into the virtual world – in relation to her work #JWIITMTESDSA? (Just what is it that makes today ́s exhibitions so different, so appealing?) - a digital archive of more than 2500 images of international contemporary art exhibitions collected over 4 years from online media such as Contemporary Art Daily, This is Tomorrow, MOUSSE Digital, gallery websites, and social media.The Liquid Archive is the first iteration of a four part series of discursive events titled Image of an Exhibition, also at: Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art - Sunderland, Spike Island - Bristol and TAP –Southend.
