REVOLVER II Part 2, a curatorial collaboration by Michael Newman and Robin Klassnik featuring Joëlle Tuerlinckx, Bronwen Buckeridge, Lucia Nogueira, 15 October – 9 November 2014
REVOLVER II comprises a fast-paced three-part series of group exhibitions to investigate the manifestation of knowledge in relation to artists who work with or reference text and publishing. All selected works over the series of the three parts combine to create a dialogue exploring the conditions in which a concept or object can manifest as knowledge within the human mind and what constitutes as uncertainty or ‘unknowing’.
Artists participating in REVOLVER II are Jaki Irvine, Joëlle Tuerlinckx, Danh Vo, Deirdre O’Dwyer, Bronwen Buckeridge, Patrick Goddard, and Lizzie Hughes. The three sections will be tied together with four site-specific interventions running from September–December from Peter Liversidge, Craig Barnes, James Coleman and Lucia Nogueira.
