Unspeaking Engagements brings together an international group of visual artists who explore processes of physical and/or durational engagement as a means of constituting the artwork. Each of the artists variously explore their own or the viewers’ awareness of their body in relation to space and time. At issue are questions of how such awareness can be cultivated, registered, represented and ultimately proliferated through the work of art. Unspeaking Engagements showcases artworks as sites of shifting experiences that veer unpredictably across time, space and object-hood and in differentiation from artworks that require detached observation and propose fixed or final interpretations.
