Curated by: Jens Hoffmann

Berlin-based curator Jens Hoffmann has been invited to curate an exhibition during the summer months of 2002 at The Project’s recently opened Los Angeles space. The exhibition focuses on the idea of exploring a totally unknown territory. Hoffmann investigated the diverse cultural and artistic scenes of Los Angeles over the period of the exhibition. The show aims to present a curatorial strategy that reacts towards the increasing deficiency of time in regards to curatorial research. The questionable concept of long term exhibition planning is reexamined as the research and the development of this exhibition started only with the first day of the show. Week by week the space of The Project was filled with more and more art works uncovered by the curator’s research.

By conceptualizing the making of an exhibition, the show proposes a different notion of how exhibitions can gain form: growing over a period of several weeks, the show emphasizes the dynamics of time and advocates an artistic and curatorial practice that privileges process over finished product. The exhibition becomes an active place, a site for development and change rather than a set of fixed and predetermined positions.

An ‘instant’ publication will document the development of the exhibition and the curatorial research in form of a diary made in collaboration with the participants and the curator of the exhibition.

Gallery hours of operation are Wednesday through Saturday 12-6 PM. The Project is located at 962 East 4th Street. The entrance is off of Hewitt Street, between 4th and 5th, three blocks east of Alameda. If you need further directions please call 213-620-0692.
