Abstract

Speech Acts: Richard Grayson and Matt Mullican illuminates the video-based practices of these two internationally acclaimed artists, who use the format of the monologue to construct and narrate hypothetical worlds.British artist Richard Grayson imbues vernacular culture with a sense of classicism, extracting layers of meaning from an array of subject matter, including scientific explanations, flash-mob videos, dinner party conversations and purposefully bad jokes.By contrast, American artist Matt Mullican​ examines the circularities of language, conducting performances under hypnosis to vacillate between primal and public speech. Who is it we are watching as Mullican performs in an hypnotic state? How do we interrogate and categorise what is being created?The book includes video excerpts of Mullican’s first ever performance under hypnosis in Australia (staged in collaboration with Sydney’s National Art School at the iconic Cell Block Theatre, a former nineteenth-century women’s prison) and a selection of Grayson’s scripted compositions, which combine political acuity with dry wit.Author Wes Hill, having curated Grayson and Mullican in a 2015 exhibition at UTS Gallery, unpacks them further in a fascinating essay on both artists, examining their obsessions with language, performance and the nature of interpretation, which arise in their works to engage and sometimes unsettle viewers.

Abstract

Publikummet til dagens vitensentre ønsker å bli intellektuelt stimulert, snakke med hverandre og reflektere sammen over naturvitenskapelige fenomener og samfunnsaktuelle utfordringer. Å bevare kvalitet i vitensenterutstillinger handler i dag om at man kontinuerlig er opptatt av forbedring og kvalitetsutvikling. Slike prosesser er krevende. Å kunne ta i bruk profesjonelle og forskningsbaserte verktøy gjør det mulig å skape høy kvalitet etter dagens krav og forventninger samtidig som prosessen kan oppleves som tryggere, mer strukturert og oversiktlig for deltakerne. I denne håndboken presenteres UtVite-modellen – en forskningsbasert modell som er utviklet for og med vitensentrene. Håndboken presenterer teori og forskning, deler praktiske eksempler med bruken av UtVite-modellen ved norske vitensentre og konkretiserer hvordan man kan komme i gang med de fire ulike fasene i modellen.

Abstract

In the early 20th Century, exhibitions and international fairs were a favoured field for Swiss businesses that wished to conquer new territories in foreign markets. The way in which Switzerland was represented abroad challenged traditional regional construction by substituting more geometrical lines, thereby replacing the ‘chalet style’. The ‘genesis’ of the Swiss style of exhibition, between commercial expansion and modern architecture, is depicted here beyond that of a purely institutional history, providing a new viewpoint into its economic and artistic aspects. Particular atten-tion is given to the role of certain ‘intermediaries’ in the creation and diffusion of a visual culture to a commercial action.
