THESE ARE YOUR INSTRUCTIONS!
Loosely based on the work of conceptual artist Sol leWitt, five artists were invited to present instructions detailing the creation/completion/extension of artworks to a participatory audience. Gallery visitors were invited to take an active part in the exhibitions development by constructing, developing or performing the works according to their own interpretation over the course of the exhibition.
Part happening, part conceptual, part minimal, part chaos the outcomes from THESE ARE YOUR INSTRUCTIONS were unpredictable and uncertain.
The opening night was almost riotous!
'THESE ARE YOUR INSTRUCTIONS' was a SEVENTH ARI project curated by Jessica O'Brien, Irene Finkelde and Jonas Ropponen with assistance from Arts Victoria and generous sponsorship from The Workers' Club.
