Flexing Muscle: Gerry Bibby and The Bureau of Writing

Posted on 17 February 2016 in Events, News
Gerry Bibby, 'Violet Promise', 2014


In a space constructed by Gerry Bibby, a workshop will occur as part of the Bureau of Writing that takes encounter as its point of entry/exit. Writing presumes reading, inferring both ingestion and ejection, states of introspection and production that contract from, and expand into, the social in space, here becoming a public exhibition, opening on the evening of 18 February in the Ideas Platform at Artspace.

Event Details

When: Thursday, 18 February, 6–8 pm
Where: Artspace
Cost: Free

About The Bureau of Writing

The Bureau of Writing is a collaborative writing program designed for artists and presented alongside the 20th Biennale in association with Artspace. Conceived to highlight emerging or underrepresented practices in art and writing, it is inspired by key concepts explored in ‘The future is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed': the ‘in-between’, and the blurring of traditional boundaries between art forms.
