WAP24

 

WAP is a process-based program, where we delve into each others’ knowledges and things we encounter with-in artistic research of methodologies in serach of spaces of anticipation. Artists lived and work together and side by side during 2024. The Program is divided in to three editions: June, September and Session (the rest of the year). It unfolds both as public programs and  share sessions for participating artists. 


WAP is about exploring and sharing strategies on proximity through artistic expressions in the field of  walking practices through the configuration of a transformative, dynamic space for art, engaging with life and nature. Critical and poetic explorations, influenced by the immediate surroundings - wayfinding

JUNE EDITION CO-CURATOR/LEAD WALKER

John Schuerman is an environmental artist and independent curator. His artwork reflects his deep interest in nature both human and nonhuman. His aesthetic style and social consciousness formed as he grew up on a dairy farm in southern Wisconsin. His primary art practices are Walking and Drawing, which he uses to examine his community’s physical and psychic landscapes. As a curator he’s produced over 30 exhibitions across the Midwest on topics that address current concerns in our collective psyche.

 

SEPTEMBER EDITION CO-CURATOR/LEAD WALKER

Antonia Aitken based in lutruwita /Tasmania, Australia since 2014:
Through a combination of field research and studio based practice, my work is investigating social and environmental questions about how we engage with and interpret our relationships with place in a contemporary Australian context. How do we explore the complex and entangled imprint of settler colonialism and attempt to build ethical dialogue with the land and its communities?

 

The exposition is set out to present individual artist's endeavours presented in chapters by each artist. The methodology is based in  SHARE SESSIONS  (participating artists only) and PUBLIC PROGRAMS. It concludes the dissemination of WAP24, where each artist presents their own exposition. In addition to framework by curators as welll as concluding texts, each page holds the image WAP24, which brings you back to the baseline page.
