This is the fourth of ‘The Virtual Lectures by Frank Wasser’ — this lecture will trace the many histories of exhibition making as a means to pose a number of pertinent questions.
Galleries, museums, project spaces have been mostly shut for almost a year and the viewing of art has largely migrated to online platforms such as ‘online viewing rooms’ and curated screen based work, with this in mind this lecture will address a number of pertinent questions.
What is an exhibition?
How is an exhibition?
Why is an exhibition?
When is an exhibition?

Who is an exhibition?
Where is an exhibition?
How can exhibitions be read and understood across varying social, cultural and political contexts? What is the future of the exhibition? What is the role of the exhibition within the practice of an artist? Following on from previous virtual lectures by Frank Wasser this lecture will take the form of a seemingly sporadic yet intricately linked performative list. The political histories, legacies, influences, successes, failures, and implications of exhibition making will be the focus of this list which can be used as resource for further conversations.
