Short Circuit is an ambitious international touring group show consisting of nine new media artists and collectives, and devised by independent curator, Aly Grimes, in an attempt to re-assess the archetypal framework of a travelling exhibition. It proposes a new experimental model of display realised in three different locations across Europe to include Birmingham, Copenhagen and Venice. The project’s structure aims to investigate new ways that exhibition spaces can present touring shows in the Digital Age and will manifest as a highly experimental research project susceptible to failure. It might glitch, trip, malfunction or ‘short circuit’.Selected artists:
Emily Mulenga, Juneau Projects and Antonio Roberts (Birmingham);
The Cool Couple, Kensuke Koike and Ryts Monet (Venice);
Honey Beckerlee, Johan Knattrup Jensen and David Stjernholm (Copenhagen)The project is supported by the Arts Council England, New Art West Midlands and the Danish Arts Foundation.
