We have been working on an artwork for ten years.

It started with This is the Gallery and the Gallery is Many Things, an exhibition in 2008.

This is not that exhibition. This is a start of a new conversation. Birth and rebirth. Evolution as call and response. An exhibition that is a start of a new sentence. An exhibition that lasts for ten years. A multiverse of exhibitions that exist only in the now, growing and changing over twelve weeks.. Life and living and being alive. Exhibition as shared consciousness. Many artworks placed here and there to be used in many ways. A future art. Exhibition as magic, as shelter, as an unfurling of being. Exhibition as anger. Exhibition against the present system that deadens our sensibilities and threatens our wellbeing. To live, to work, to think, to rehearse, to be social. Exhibition that calls for society to be reworked. To be responsive to all our needs.

There is no neutral stance.

It is our responsibility to make exhibitions where pleasure and function are inclusive – both are required for a non-coercive, supportive society.

Over the last ten years we have seen the rise of a more coercive society. We do not feel more supported. We are only more aware of the withdrawal of common and decent support. Consciousness has changed. Too often, anxiety is what is shared, not opportunity.

We will never accept this. This is the Gallery and the Gallery is Many Things X is an attempt at new exhibition making with old and new friends, with many voices, collaborators, artists, workers, active citizens. We are active through art – art as a key human function. We use what we can while it works. We want new life. We have joined together to execute functional constructions and to alter or refurbish existing structures as a way of surviving in a capitalist economy.
