Practising Wysing: 10 ways to misuse a building

10 choreographic instructions to adapt a galery


WAC: Partnering, Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge (UK), 16 October – 28 November 2010

Practising Wysing is an invitation to an exhibition audience to become part of an exhibition themselves, while experiencing an unusual view of a contemporary arts centre. Architectural information about 10 places in the complex of buildings that make up Wysing Art Centre was combined with instructions for using these places other than intended. A leaflet containing this information was made available in the show, displayed next to an image of children playing on the handrails of the entrance ramp. During the opening the audience were invited to try out the instructions in a collaborative performance.
