Gallery.Delivery is both a group exhibition and a performance that can be ordered online. It will be delivered by bike courier in a "White Cube" courier bag to the address stipulated in the order, where it will be temporarily installed.
As the Internet increasingly penetrates every corner of our lives, this is giving rise to a mindset where we expect immediate availability in all aspects of our material world, triggered by a simple click or tap.
Gallery.Delivery applies the promise of immediate availability to the exhibition space and the format of the group show. However, unlike with normal delivery services, the couriers don't stop at the doorstep; instead, they enter the private home where they set up the exhibition and offer the works for sale. In this moment, the process of setting up the exhibition takes centre stage as a performative aspect of the show.
Your favourite artists, delivered: Banz & Bowinkel, Aram Bartholl, Nadja Buttendorf, Bastiaan de Nennie, Andy Kassier, Olia Lialina, Silvio Lorusso, Jonas Lund, Shawn Maximo, !Mediengruppe Bitnik & Low Jack, Milena Milosavljevic, Peggy Pehl and Grażyna Roguski
