Priority Lane is an exhibition space with the general aim to investigate how the artistic approach is influenced by the urge to prioritise. A process of choosing, selecting, deleting and refining is obligatory.
The Aesthetics of Prioritising
The largest low-cost, low-fare exhibition, today announced its new exhibition policy designed to eliminate the excessive number of works at the academy, overcrowding all students' brains. Students of all departments are currently subjected to delays, offloading of cabin bags and inconvenience due to the lack of space caused by too many large projects, exhibitions and art works.
In this exhibition series, artists and designers are asked to come over to the KABK. Due to an economization of the budget, their exhibited works must not be bigger than 32 x 42 x 25 centimetres: in other words, taking their hand luggage, for free! A process of choosing, selecting, deleting and refining is the result of these curatorial limits in space. How do artists and designers deal with these extreme economisations of space?
The exhibition project is divided over an online and offline space. Visit the physical exhibition at the KABK ‑ situated in the entrance to the Graphic Design Department. On this website an online archive of previous exhibitions can be found. Also, invited artists and designers explain their artistic approach and methods. Images of the exhibition space are included.
