Curated by Chris Fite-Wassilak, Quiet Revolution, is the inaugural Curatorial Open exhibition organised by Hayward Touring, presents lo-tech sculptural works that question the way in which we interact with our surroundings.
Seven international contemporary artists: David Beattie, Margrét H. Blöndal, Matt Calderwood, Alice Channer, Hreinn Friðfinnsson, Mitzi Pederson and Joëlle Tuerlinckx – create poetic spatial interventions made from the unnoticed materials found all around us, exploring how we can transform, and are transformed by, our environment.
In the spirit of the works’ open-ended sense of experimentation, this publication is a hybrid book, magazine and an exhibition in miniature. It includes an essay by independent curator Chris Fite-Wassilak, biographies of the artists, and seven full-colour posters of the exhibited works.
Published to accompany the exhibition, touring 4 July – 30 August 2009, Milton Keynes Gallery; 19 September – 14 November 2009, Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Preston; 21 November – 10 January 2010, Djanogly Art Gallery, Nottingham.
