Radio Arts Space constructs a gallery inside radio space, where Sound art and Radio art works are exhibited. It explores all the possible ways of exhibiting and reading Radio and Sound art. The project is also complemented by an (international) platform for the discussion of meanings, contextualization, artistic research and the exchange of sound art works. It is not designed as a hermetic space with all the answers given in advance, but as a structurally complex space, which generates new questions..
Radio Arts Space consists from 46 artworks, exhibited by 42 artists from 22 countries.The project Radio Arts Space combines seven independent curatorial perspectives and approaches in its exhibition format (Manja Ristić, Maria Papadomanolaki, Milica Pekić, Ilari Valbonesi, Brane Zorman, Tevž Logar and Robert Sakrowski). The invited curators were given a common starting point: they could choose to put together a selection of works, based on an open call (160 artworks), released by radioCona in May 2011 and/or to choose the authors on their own. This is why some of artists in the exhibition appear several times.
Accompanied events: workshops (Torsten Michelson / Ligna, Robert Sakrowski (CYT)), lecture by Elizabeth Zimmermann, live events and performances (Petra Kapš / 47 (8)>(7) of textual fragments for Radio Art Space, Robert Sakrowski / An Acoustic Journey Through YouTube, Ilari Valbonesi / Ultra Disco, radioCona intervention on the Ljubljana Main marketplace and live skype performance by Brane Zorman with selected artists, the curators’ presentations).
