Space is the Place is an exhibition of documentation of artistic practices which intervene in public space. The focus is on ephemeral, temporary works which take place out of a gallery setting, living on only in their documentation.

Invited artists will send documentation of their work as images, texts and video directly to the gallery electronically where the material will be printed out and displayed on walls and screens by the curatorial team with the exhibition being produced in the gallery during it's run.

A submission / suggestion system utilising social networking site Facebook, and Twitter will also be provided. . The exhibition will have a reading room aesthetic with comfortable seating and texts laid out on trestle tables. Visitors will be encouraged to sit and browse the documentation on offer and engage with the exhibition personnel. At the end of the exhibition the documentation will be collected and archived as a resource.
