    THE ORGANISATION OF DIRT

    - THE BIRTHDAY PARTY

    Under the aegis of Independent Curating, students from Leeds University have initiated a project which will invite guests and their participation at Temple Works Leeds, on Wednesday 19th May commencing at 6:00pm.

    Organised with curator Micheale Spessa and designer Alex Keating, "The Birthday Party" will host performances and screenings by students from the course.

    The website "The Organisation of Dirt", to be launched on the night, catalogues and displays text and image related to a critique of the museum. How can display be rethought in actions?

    For Temple Works, guest artist Makiko Nagaya will present an edible "White Cube" in the context of Harold Pinter's screenplay "The Birthday Party". The event will present live works by participants from the course, working in collaborations.

    The project culminates the research undertaken in workshops with Peter Lewis at Leeds University Fine Art, Art History and Cultural Studies Department, entitled "Context Responsive Curating", the course being originally devised by Vanalyne Green and the Leeds based Situationist group, Black Dogs.

    "The Organisation of Dirt" interrogates the potential of action through alternative modes of address that resist the 'institutionalisation' of dirty space, and inherits art's activist and radical programmes from the various historical avant-gardes situating perilous acts, that offend, reconcile, attract, repel, break, dissociate, unite, and re-unite, to liberate thought.

    YOU CAN'T TAKE THE MUSEUM OUT OF ART, CAN YOU TAKE THE ART OUT OF THE MUSEUM? IS THERE STILL AN OUTSIDE OUT THERE? IS THERE STILL ANY ALTERNATIVE?
