23rd August: “Practice as a Site for Enquiry II: Hybridity”, RMIT Seminar; “What are the configurations, associations and strategies that determine and or influence the way contemporary object based practice is articulated today? The seminar is designed as an opportunity to examine how the perimeters of Object based Practice are being tested, developed, challenged and/or contested by those makers researching or practicing in interdisciplinary fields. Organisers are interested in reflecting the breadth of models for framing practice and opening the dialogue around hybrid practice in relation to collaboration, the use of technology, interdisciplinary practice and new and emerging forms in Object based Practice.” [link]

29th August – 3rd September: workshop with Ben Lignel (France): ‘I ___ workshops! (or: the thrills and pangs of user participation)‘; “This Master Class explores objects and ‘participatory strategies’. Objects that: signal that they are somehow incomplete; encourage the participation of the user to ‘finish them’ either spell out , or consciously conceal, how this co-production will work.  This theme ties in with the broader subject of ‘open oeuvre’, as theorized by people like Umberto Eco, Roland Barthes. It finds echoes today in copyleft and open source creative strategies.” [link]

please tell me of other exhibitions!
