Developing work to include in his ‘Threads’ exhibition at The Dock Austin considers the aesthetics of the Cold War, the promise and disappointment of technology and cultural representations of the end of the world.
The Dock team was looking forward to working with a number of visual artists this year. As a result of the Covid 19 restrictions, there was a break in our gallery programme. This meant that the visual artists we were to work with were now without the opportunity to exhibit. The team here think long and hard about what and who we programme in the galleries, so decided to invite the artists who are part of the 2020 programme to submit an idea and approach to developing their work during this Covid-19 lockdown. The Dock framed this as a small commission, to offer the artists encouragement to keep making work and to continue their connection with us and with you the audience.
The commissioned work was mediated via our social media platforms and here on our website.
