positive spaceback

In architecture, the external space that is defined with order and function is called positive space. The opposite is negative space. Positive space is described as small self-organized art organizations in the present China. These organizations are the hub of the whole art system, linking collages, galleries and museums, just like plug-ins that are embedded in different art forms. That’s why the twelve exhibitors are represented as plug-ins in the exhibition image.

在建筑学中,那些由人为框定,并在框架内规划秩序、功能的外部建筑空间被称为“积极空间”,反之则为“消极空间”。策展人将积极空间比作活跃在中国当下的小型自我组织的艺术机构。他们是学院、画廊、美术馆等整个艺术体系中的纽带,他们就像插件一样镶嵌在艺术群体中。故,我们将12个参展机构以插件的形式融合在此次展览的形象中。
