From the United Kingdom to the 2017 Venice Biennale, a collective of international contemporary artists bring a new exhibition to Point of Contact Gallery and Syracuse University.
Boîte-en-Valise encourages transportability of practice, the nurturing of collaboration and cross-fertilization of artistic practice. For Boîte-en-Valise: Generate artists worked with individuals and communities in Portsmouth and Syracuse to develop the work.
Each artist is transporting the means to generate their work at Point of Contact Gallery, begun by working with people and places over several days in Syracuse, in a normal sized suitcase. To be transported as luggage on a normal flight, train or bus journey and taken from the suitcase for presentation without any fixing to walls, floors and/or ceilings of the venues. These six artists bring together works including sculpture, performance, video, photography and sound as well as interventions and conversations.
