Jamaica Flux: Workspaces & Windows 2010
“Jamaica Flux: Workspaces & Windows,” a project of the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning (JCAL), is a site-specific, public art exhibition mounted every three years with the intention of using the urban environment as a studio and exhibition space. The first two editions of Jamaica Flux, in 2004 and 2007, featured the works of artists such as Andrea Fraser, Barbara Kruger, and Fred Wilson, Christopher K. Ho, Jenny Polak, and Felix Gonzales-Torres. The theme of the third edition is "Art as Action."
Lia Perjovschi's "Knowledge Museum" represents 20 years of interdisciplinary research, depicted visually by diagrams, publications, timelines on general culture and art from 1990-today, replicas of artwork, multiples, and a collection of objects from museum shops. This sometimes institution, sometimes project has been presented under different guises since 1985, less formally at the start, then, structured as the Contemporary Art Archive, CAA (1997), and later, as the Center for Art Analysis CAA/CAA (1999).
Perjovschi plans to build the actual museum someday; until then she presents it in the form of an architect's plan, or model. “Draft,” “Plan,” and “Kit” represent Perjovschi’s artistic strategies and practices, while the project remains, for the moment, at a conceptual level.
For “Jamaica Flux: Workspaces & Windows 2010,” Perjovschi will present a kit from the Knowledge Museum, incorporating elements from the JCAL itself, and the New-York-American context, and will hold a series of workshops and lectures (brainstorming on different issues). Her installation will be on display in continuation after the conclusion of the exhibition on June 12, 2010. Lia Perjovschi's participation in Jamaica Flux 2010 is made possible with the support of RCINY.
