The Intraspace Project: Interventions with Waikato Museum Non-Gallery Space

1 December 2010 - 1 June 2014

The Intraspace Project is Waikato Museum's latest initiative in interrogating the building as installlation site. Activating non-gallery space as sites where artists' interventions can occur.

Utilising utilitarian locations within and external to  the museum building, the curator will solicit artists to interface with the designated spaces and respond accordingly. These interactions will culminate in anything from one to seven works in new spaces that could last one minute to one month.

All of the works will be made visible to the world, creating a virtual but real-time exhibition that is not bound by fiscal, spatial nor bureaucratic intervention. It's the simple USE of space that activates the art.

This is the first of its kind in museums in Aotearoa.

For information, also see our Facebook page. To see the virtual performances and art works we will be posting these to our YouTube account.

All exhibitions are viewable by appointment throughout the working week. Please phone 07 8386716 or email Intraspace Curator: Leafa Wilson
