(time for another SF meeting ?!)

Production Meeting
Private view: Tuesday 24 July 2007, 6 to 9pm
Opening times: Wednesday 25 to Friday 27 July, 11am to 6pm

Participating artists include: Hayley Caradoc Hodgkins, House of
O'Dwyer, Colin Tennant...

Intermedia Gallery
350 Sauchiehall St
G2 3JD
For Production Meeting, the Centre of Attention will be onsite (on location) for the duration aiming to pursue the production of a number of works. The gallery becomes a set as well as a production meeting venue, in what we call an active or 'hot installation'.

Filming tests, script editing and performance will be done against a back drop of a contemporary art show which includes paintings, photography etc. The Centre of Attention will be available the whole time to meet artists, discuss and review proposals and portfolios while pursuing the production of a number of video works including 'Remake', 'Boo', and the as-yet-untitled staging of a mass fight in the gallery at the opening.

Uncertainty, provisionality and the lack of a defined product see the moment of the exhibition, not as the culmination/fruition of a process, but as a production site for preliminary research and work to be completed at a later date (maybe).

One avowed aim of Production Meeting is to turn the audience into fodder for our work: in this model, the viewer becomes the labour rather than participant, and the artist becomes the consumer, utilising, bleeding the resources of the infrastructure, the space and the public, for the realisation of their own ends.

Our version of a production meeting may not bear any resemblance to what passes for a production meeting in the corporate world.

Notes: Production Meeting is part of 'It's not hard' curated by Anthony Schrag at Intermedia.

The Centre of Attention
is a gallerycuratorartistschaft started in London in 1999.
