Claire Tancons looks back at Up Hill Down Hall: An indoor Carnival (BMW Tate Live 2014) through an essay and Q&A with the artists and participants and provides elements of answer to the question: What can institutions and the public create together through performance?
Can the center be superseded or hacked by the periphery? This question forms part of the inquisitive framework of the Transcending Boundaries chapter of the book within which Claire Tancons discusses her curatorial practice with Natasha O’Hare.
Editors Paula Marincola and Shannon Jackson asked Claire Tancons to provide elements of reflection around the art and performance keywords Curating and Participation based on her scholarly research and curatorial practice.
Guest editor Amy J. Elias asked a group of artists and scholars in different arts fields to consider what the “networked commons” means for art and artists today – when “networked” is defined not only in terms of technological connections but also in terms of affective and social relations.
