The 4th of each month is our 4bidday, an experimental day for exhibitions and discussions. We invite you to participate with your work, to watch, to listen and talk.
FOR ONE DAY The gallery becomes a space in which you present a research, a work and the process of creation or a question.
It becomes a home for discussions and a place for sharing thoughts, allowing Viewer and Viewed to find meeting points.The site functions as a means to help developing creative processes. By allowing an encounter between audience and the work we hope to facilitate a conversation between the two within a space where “it is possible to go wrong”.
4bidday is a chance for the visitor to discover contemporary art in a non-formal environment, with no prejudices, giving both sides (Viewer and Viewed) the chance to discuss face to face and open up sights.
Viewer will meet the artist, get to know about his work, and engage with others.
Viewed will benefit from feedback and have a possibility compare their views.
WHAT TO DO AND HOW:
The artist brings the work/investigation/question TO THE GALLERY ON THE DAY, SETS UP and presents it to the public in the space*.
The artist needs to send an email the day before, at the latest 3rd of the month, in order to reserve a space pointing out duration and technical needs (depending on gallery availability). Earlier notices are welcome, first come first served.
The viewer decides whether to get involved in what is happening or simply to receive the information as a spectator, depending on what’s being shown in the day.
THE WORK GETS INSTALLED AND DIS-INSTALLED PREFERABLY ON THE DAY.
4bid gallery hosts the artist free of charge. Each participant will be published on 4bidday and 4bid monthly catalog, distributed across a varied network and the web.
