In the period from her moving in until July 10, we invite you to visit this neither- private- nor- public space in Kordunska and to spend time in the gap. Continue reading

All That Fits: The Aesthetics of Journalism [uk Derby]

[Image: Insurance.AES256 by Michael Takeo Magruder. See video below.] All That Fits: The Aesthetics of Journalism — Curated by Alfredo Cramerotti & Simon Sheikh :: until July 31, 2011 :: QUAD Gallery, Market Place, Cathedral Quarter, Derby, DE1 3AS.

The exhibition All that Fits: The Aesthetics of Journalism presents the provocative idea that art and journalism are two sides of a unique activity; the production and distribution of images and information.
