#0.2 Workshop marks the middle point of IT IS PROBABLY BETTER TO START FROM ZERO. It aims to be a point of discussion and exchange between curators and artists, touching upon relevant aspects of the project and its outlines. It intends to take stock of the project and its development, and to understand how questions of unpredictability, production, time, space and collaboration will have an impact of the continuation of the project and return of each artist to the Window Space, for a second display. This is a closed doors event held at the Whitechapel Gallery, London, streaming live from 2.30pm-5pm.
#0.2 counts with the presence of Miriam LaRosa, co-curator of LIMITACTION, that ran from January to July 2015 at the Window Space. It was a collaborative project that developed in the form of an artistic residency with the artist Charlotte Warne Thomas, aiming to transform the Window Space in an artist studio. Miriam comes to the workshop to give her input on the project from the position of someone who is familiar with the space and its challenges.
