CCA Tbilisi Announces 1st Tbilisi Triennial - Offside Effect
19 July, 2012

CCA Tbilisi has recently initiated organizing of an idiosyncratic dissemination platform: a Triennial not only implying visual art, but also including a focus on art education and its related forms of research. The first edition of this Triennial, entitled Offside Effect, will take place from October 19 till November 20, 2012.

 

The notion of Offside Effect can be understood in various metaphoric ways. For example, in the manner of artistic thinking, breaking through formalized frameworks of knowledge production. Or in the

mode of agonistic, heterogeneous forms of laboratory-based education remedying homogenizing approaches. The ultimate ambition of the Tbilisi Triennial Offside Effect is to map a variety of practises in the form of activities, economics, methodologies, and strategies all connected with the experimental field of artistic thinking.

Various curatorial tools will be deployed in Offside Effect. Firstly, four keynote artists will be invited, i.e. artists who have demonstrated in their renowned practices to be able to articulate a stance with respect to art academies and art education. The four keynotes are: Hito Steyerl, Stephan Dillemuth, Anton Vidokle, and Marion von Osten.

Secondly, around twelve experimental education platforms—Maumaus (Lisboa), ISA (Habana), Staedelschule (Frankfurt), Finnish Academy of Fine Arts (Helsinki), MaHKU (Utrecht), Mildred’s Lane (New York), F+F (Zurich), AICA (Yerevan), KHAS (Istanbul), Addis Contemporary (Addis Ababa), Kaywon College (Seoul) and CCA IMP (Tbilisi)—will be asked to demonstrate and disseminate their specific view on visual art, art education, and research in a number of presentations. The ”Academy as Exhibition” is the ultimate curatorial position Offside Effect will take.

In the opening week of the Triennial, various practises will be discussed further in a number of fora. In addition to the keynotes and a multitude of institute representatives such as Rene Francisco, Nikolaus Hirsch, Lucrezia Cippitelli, Inci Evinir, Mark Dion & Morgan Puett, Tiong Ang, Juergen Bock, Annette Krauss, Youngjune Lee, Jan Kaila, Sami van Ingen, the project will also involve speakers such as a.o. Mick Wilson (Gradcam, Dublin) and Gao Shiming (School of Intermedia, China Academy Hangzhou).The 1st Tbilisi Triennial is also made possible by the support of the Georgian Ministry of Culture and Monument Protection.
