A Chronological Manor’s new project for 2011
For this project the A Chronological Manor group will be joined by will be Caroline Powley, HOD Design, Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design. We are envisaging that it will take the form of a publication or series of publications, in which the artists will generate the content, while the design, provided by Caroline Powley, will provide a structure or vernacular for the discursive conversation we wish to facilitate. We are approaching this project as investigative research into the ways in which the book format provides a platform for the dissemination of artistic practice separate from, and independent of, the exhibition format. Rather than operating in any way like a catalogue or survey of works, we are interested in the book as a creative and curatorial project in itself. That is it is it does not defer to an external art event; it is the event.
