'Unplugged IV'

The Rembrandt van Rijn Gallery presents 'Unplugged IV', the fourth phase in a group exhibition project, initiated by Kendell Geers in March 1996, in collaboration with the Market Theatre Galleries.

Exhibition opens: Sunday 21 February 1999 at 6pm. Closing Saturday 13 March.

During a panel discussion at the Sao Paulo Biennial in 1995, Bruce Ferguson (curator of Site Santa Fe and art critic for Art Forum) and Lorna Ferguson (co-ordinator of the Johannesburg Biennial 1995) entered into a discussion on the issue of soft curating. A method for producing exhibitions where the artists determine the content and presentation of the exhibition. This form of curatorial procedure proposes to be a transparent and democratic process, 'Unplugged' will endeavor to foreground this approach.

The selection process for the exhibition functions like a chain letter. Each artist has one choice, which is passed on to the next artist who will make the following choice. It is important that a copy of this notice be made and passed on to each participant, every artist should have their own copy so as to keep record of the process.

Please find below the past three 'Unplugged' exhibitions selection lists. These lists will enable you to follow the selection process and how it has unfolded thus far.
