A*TABLE is an exhibition proposal from members of A*STUDY, a programme of advanced studies in contemporary art organised by A*DESK and taught by David Armengol. A*TABLE remains faithful to the space that characterises it, the table, that has been the place of daily meetings, for debate and exchange. A*TABLE subverts the standard use of the table converting it into a unique space for learning, for discussion and exhibiting and has two main objectives. On the one hand, to explore the different positions that define current artistic practices: the condition of the artist, the role of the curator, the context for action…and on the other, to consider these practices from the actual experience of its public presentation.
A*TABLE proposes to investigate new forms of presenting and exhibiting projects. It takes as its premise a basic structure (both formally and economically), that establishes a need to question patterns of consumption, forms of presenting and articulating discourses, and above all, an opportunity to experiment with sustainable ways of developing ideas in art and culture.
