Midpointness - Documentation 10/12/16

Saturday 10th December

·       Wear Midpointness T-shirt

·       The far wall should have a band of 20cms each day of dark green painted across it floor to ceiling each day using masking tape, an image of this from the same position should be added to the airspace blog



·       Every day invigilators should encourage visitors to fill in Toby Huddlestone questionnaires until 100 is reached

·       Every day invigilators should encourage visitors to read or sing Lily Mellor’s cue cards and do this themselves

·       Each day there should be some documentation of the show added to the Airspace blog

·       Between 11am-12pm – you should get the paint tins allotted for the day from the workshop, use masking tape on the edges to not spill over and take down or cover any artwork that is in danger of getting paint on it before doing this task. With the remaining tins of paint you should add more stripes to the alcove housing Euripides Altintzoglou 's work so that there are more and thinner stripes in new colours





·       Between 12-1pm - Turn one of Gerard Williams 'Cultural Currency' pieces around to be visible on the other side using a ladder and clean hands

·       Between 2-3pm – in this hour you should make 10 drawings in an hour, they can be in any media and can be installed in any way at the end, but they should constitute a ‘drawing’ and ‘an exhibition’, follow these instructions,
IA - Do a 1 minute drawing
IA - Do a 2 minute drawing
IA - Do a 3 minute drawing
IA - Do a 4 minute drawing
IA - Do a 5 minute drawing
IA - Do a 6 minute drawing

Today’s invigilator spent this hour considering work, art and art work. They also spent some time contemplating the painting untitled by Alan Mackerel. After much contemplation the invigilator decided that midpointness, at that moment, did not require further art work. And certainly not a new exhibition within the exhibition. It needed some work. The invigilator swept the floor and touched up some painting of the walls and skirting board. The invigilator decided that all current artworks within the show would be much improved by some work. After all this, the artworks in the show looked new to the invigilator.



·       Between 3-4pm - Turn one of Gerard Williams 'Cultural Currency' pieces around to be visible on the other side using a ladder and clean hands


·       Between 4-5pm - Turn one of Gerard Williams 'Cultural Currency' pieces around to be visible on the other side using a ladder and clean hands 

       Installed Kate Buckley’s latest additions to her Ongoing series:






Midpointness is an evolving project which seeks to equate itself along the lines of a conceptual model of the cosmic. Over the course of 4 weeks, this group exhibition, featuring works by 27 UK and international artists will change and evolve, grow and diminish, pulsate through the works of the artists and the participation of the audience. Curatorial control will, at times be handed over to Gallery staff and exhibition visitors, both live and remote. Through this egalitarian, hierarchy-free approach, Midpointness will seek to explore the nature of the artist, the exhibition, the audience and the work of art.
