DIALOGUE IN PROCESS/ AN EXHIBITION WITH DANIEL CANOGAR AND STEPHEN DEAN
Koldo Mitxelena, San Sebastian
25 February – 8 May 2010
Curator: Cecilia Andersson

Upon entering the space, two process rooms are set up, one for each artist. The content of these rooms aim to provide a closer and slightly different approach to the works than in the rest of the exhibition. In that, the process rooms set the tone for the exhibition and are devised to provide audiences with additional information and associations as well as offering background information prior to visiting the installations. The aim is also to stimulate and encourage interaction with the works on display, to activate curiosity and participation, to expand notions of interpretation and to facilitate a more open and hopefully deeper engagement with the works.

Reflecting upon some of the material aspects of process art where change and transience are inherit, in our increasingly digitalized world, what would process art look like today? How may digitally based works alter and evolve? Can the passage of time be manifested in any other way than technologies becoming obsolete and by upgrades? The exhibition intends to map not only aspects of Canogar’s and Dean’s individual processes and dialogues, but also to trace remnants of process art embedded in today’s technology driven expressions.

Daniel Canogar lives and works in Madrid. He works with photography, video, sculpture and installation.

Stephen Dean lives and works in New York and Paris but is currently based at Villa Medici in Rome. He works with video, sculpture, installation and painting.

A digital catalogue containing an essay and interviews with both artists by the curator, videos and stills, will be published in conjunction with the exhibition.
