Feedback etc… is a feedback service for contemporary artists based in Perth. This service draws on and extends the model developed by CLUBS Projects inc.
CLUBSfeedback was convened by CLUBS between 2002 – 2006, where a small group of diverse practitioners were invited to discuss work at the completion of a project.
In their own words:
CLUBSfeedback focus upon on the means by which the work in question exists in the space of its presentation/actualisation. It is an attempt to develop an engaged reading or analysis of work through focused and extended collaborative dialogue. CLUBSfeedback begins by unravelling, through ‘observation’, the material and spatial structure of the work. These observations then open into critical discussions. The artist is not required to justify or explain the work in this process, but is engaged towards the end of the discussion when questions are formulated. These sessions are intended to be supportive, whereby the artists’ project is opened up to detailed analysis. We borrowed and developed this practice from an academic model that we shared together as students and we decided to continue it in order to build empowering and engaged peer relations.
Feedback etc… is open to creative practitioners who are interested in developing critical arts practices within Perth. For obvious reasons we are unable to provide feedback to artists that are currently enrolled in academic programs.
If you are interested in receiving feedback or simply participating in the discussion, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or check out the express interest page.
