Cumberland, Kelly (2015) MANUAL v1.1 art publication, Art Palma Brunch, Palma de Mallorca, 2015. [Show/Exhibition]


I am engaged in an on-going collaborative project with artists and gallerists in Palma de Mallorca. The project involves a series of exhibitions and publications. The printed exhibitions co-exist to provide relevant exhibition information whilst also contributing as an artwork in its own right. Central to my practice is an investigation into the nature of a serial body of work, the complex relationships between repetition, reproduction and difference and its manifestations as expanded drawing practice. The process of making and documenting exhibitions leads to the development of strategies of dissemination, extending the reach of a body of work, and making new connections. Following on from the first exhibition MANUAL v1.0, Nit de l’Art Palma, Sant Feliu, Mallorca, 2013, I designed and self published this limited edition print based exhibition, ‘Manual v 1.1. I then participated in ‘Art Palma Brunch’ April 2015 and distributed this publication through a number of participating galleries. This annual spring event has been running for 12 years, it is hosted by art galleries and museums and is organised by the Asociación de Galerías Art Palma Contemporani. The context of the work and the final outcomes were diverse in nature. A new collaborative project with a new audience and new networks emerged as a result of continued engagement and communication. Connections were made with Art Palma and the gallery ‘Aba Art Lab’, with a view to further collaboration. The exhibition publication has several areas of impact, this includes the development of wider networks and an invitation from ABA Art Lab, Palma de Mallorca, to develop a new collaborative outdoor installation in Plaça Porta de Santa Catalina, as part of the ‘Nit de l’Art Palma 15’ Official Programme.
