Evental, discursive and intensive in form but task-based in nature, Setting the Table departed from current research into the curatorial as an extension to exhibition-making that focuses on the social, collaborative and educational discursive ‘turns’ in art. It brought together people, artefacts and art objects into the concept of an ‘exhibition-in-the-making’. This concept sought to identify and emphasise collaborative potentials in the production of exhibitions to allow for a format that may be propagative of research. In doing so participants were tasked to repurpose the objects gathered towards a collective adaptation of Aristophanes’ satire Peace, which was to engage a public within 72 hours through performance.
