This was the final element of the Exhibition as Medium programme. Beginning with Start Symposium in early 2011, the programme and organisation was always perceived as an ongoing active conversation delving into alternate exhibition formats, thinking about the exhibition as one co-authored artwork rather than a space in which to show separately authored works. The programme has attempted to bridge the chasm between the discussion generated through research and process, and the 'final' exhibited product.

FINAL EVENT OF EXHIBITION AS MEDIUM PROGRAMME AT CRATE! - SUNDAY 3 JUNE 3 - 6PM
RUTH BEALE, KAREN DI FRANCO, NO FIXED ABODE, NEAL WHITE
Crate presents the last event in the project spaces as part of the Exhibition as Medium programme.
You are invited to join us for a series of interconnected events on Sunday 3 June starting at 3pm. Artists Ruth Beale, Karen Di Franco, No Fixed Abode and Neal White present events devised over the last few months via a forecasting technique used during the Cold War called The Delphi Method. These events form the culmination of an anonymous collaborative discussion between the artists, with the curator acting as facilitator through the entire process.
The process of using The Delphi Method has allowed the artists involved to incrementally refine their ideas for Event Show, with the suggestion of 5 separate actions as part of one larger event.
They have FORMED A COMMITTEE and issue a summons to attend a WAKE between 3 - 6pm during which time there will be RITUALISED REFRESHMENTS, DIAGRAMMATIC ACTION, PERPETUAL REMEMBERANCE and the UNVEILING OF THE FOUNDATION STONE.

Crate studio and Project Space presents the third exhibition as part of the current Exhibition as Medium Programme.
NOTES FOR AN EXHIBITION
Six curators, one artist, one gallery, three weeks.
The focus of Notes for an exhibition will move away from methods of teleological exhibition-making toward action, response and production, emphasizing collaboration and discussion, association and conversation.
Notes for an exhibition is an experiment that will deliberately be allowed to evolve and change shape.
Over the exhibition’s three-week duration, six curators working in pairs will collaborate with the artist Desmond Church. To begin with the gallery space will be empty; throughout the three weeks to come Church will programmatically send each pair of curators a series of proposals for works, actions or instructions. These proposals will be sent one at a time, to the curators and will most likely take the form of a drawing or a line of text, which will be interpreted and produced by the curators and finally be displayed alongside the outcome of their directive. The accumulation of these proposals and their outcomes will grow and exist in the gallery as evidence of the collaboration, building almost toward the final production of a Desmond Church solo show.
Notes for an exhibition therefore seeks to address questions of duration and presence with regard to content and the development of ideas. It also hopes to investigate, or begin to unravel, contemporary ideas around authorship, object/research dynamics and the outsourcing of artistic production, drawing on alternative exhibition histories as inspiration toward its final outcome.
