Act 1/Scene 20


The Theatre of Pompey, Rome, Italy
23 April 2013, Sunset. Free

A short play as meditation on the primary and secondary functions and realities of art production, curating and ‘art as exhibition’. Wade will take us on a short journey through the stages of exposition, rising action, climax, falling action and denouement hinged on the proposition ‘art is not exhibited, art exhibits’.
