Invisible Venue explores unconventional formats for the presentation of contemporary art--a wide variety of practices overlap with this focus including site-specific projects, public interventions, and alternative art venues. Many organizations, artists, artworks, curators, exhibitions, articles and books influence the development of Invisible Venue. The following is a working index of my research, archived here for those who might be interested to learn more.
