A_M O-O is an installation that provides a physical exhibition space, which is active, productive and attempts to create a critical context for artworks, praxis and projects to momentarily sit within. The mutating structure instigates its ‘critical context’ via its compaction of research, production and display into one space. And artist, curator, writer and visitor into one participant. Contemporary artists from around the world will present work within O-O.
Some exhibitions or events will take over the space and disassemble the scene, others will utilise it as a space for production and some will work with it as a unique site for presentation. Alongside the exhibitions and events programme A_M will be working in O-O, continuing to run the space and work on its publications. This expanded, collaborative practice on one site is an experiment in translating the work/presentation/viewing platforms of much contemporary online content into the gallery space creating a working environment which responds to, critiques and develops our uses of these forms and structures.
