Event Architecture: Administration as Artistic Practice

Scott Rogers

Festivals: M:ST 4 Biennial | October 3 - 17, 2008.

The history of Canadian artist-run centres has fostered a strong culture of artist-administrators whose practices often draw from their experience working within institutional structures and systems. This has resulted in the development of hybrid projects that investigate and renegotiate the relationships between artists and institutions. This panel brings together several of the artists who are presenting as part of the M:ST 4 Event Architecture Series to discuss the ways that they have used administrative strategies to develop their practices.
