The BxNU Symposium brings together artists, curators, academics and writer, to activate an inquiry into the interlocking possibilities of meaning presented by the exhibition, Jason Rhoades, Four Roads.

During his lifetime Rhoades’ installations were rarely understood as finished or finite. Constantly in flux, works were divided up into constituent parts, materials reused and presented anew. Today the work continues to exist within a constant process of recontextualisation and is imbued with parallel narratives as illustrated by the four interpretive themes, or roads, proposed in this display. To examine this multi-layered system of interpretation, the symposium will offer a range of deviant pathways through screenings, presentations, workshop and discussion. In response to the artist’s absent presence, the question shifts from, “What would Jason do? to, “What has Jason done?”

Exhibition Walkthrough: David Campbell and Mark Durden / The fetishism of Commodities and the Secret thereof.

Members of the collaborative art group Common Culture, Professor David Campbell (Northumbria University), and Professor Mark Durden (University of South Wales, led a responsive walk through the exhibition in light of their interest in art’s relationship to contemporary cultures of consumption, choosing to focus on the thematic of commodity excess and recycling systems in Rhoades’ work.
