The Melbourne Art Fair is pleased to announce Jacqueline Doughty as Curator of MAF Edge 2014, a new exhibition platform dedicated to experimental contemporary art practices.
Social Capital brings together performative and socially engaged artworks that blur the boundary between artist and audience. Characterising art as an interaction between people rather than between a viewer and an object, the exhibition includes a major commission in the MAF Edge space alongside projects dispersed throughout the Royal Exhibition Building, which draw audience members into unexpected encounters and activities. Social Capital includes new collaborative projects by a number of key practitioners of relational and participatory art, including Jess Olivieri with the Parachutes for Ladies; Lara Thoms and Jason Maling; Catherine Ryan and Amy Spiers; and Peter Burke and Adele Varcoe.
