Dates: 3 Oct - 1 Nov 2008

Venue: Shop G10, Hollywood Centre, 233 Hollywood Road (same building as AAA)
Reading art history today, one is inevitably faced with questions such as: How objective is art history? What are alternative ways to consider art historical documents? And, is there one universal story or can we accommodate parallel interpretations?
During the course of October Contemporary, AAA will set up a space to consider these questions and invite individuals to take action by interpreting materials on art history using a selection of titles from AAA’s collection.
Art historian, Pamela Kember and artist, Michael Lee, are invited to work within this space and will each present a project in an attempt to offer alternate perspectives and possibilities in rethinking documents of recent art history. At the same time, we invite the wider public to participate and respond to the project by contributing books, through donation or loan, on contemporary art, culture and humanities, which will be publicly accessible throughout the course of the project.
