This Boosted campaign has been initiatated to organise the next
two months worth of rent for the IWT Project Space, 179a Point
Chevalier Road. This project has been self funded up until this
IWT Project Space is a project gallery space intended to connect
the unconnected. The space was initiated by artist J.A. Kennedy,
and has currently been in operation for four months and held three
shows as part of the curation series collectively titled
'((126.96.36.199.) (1.))'. The three shows exhibited works from
(First iteration) Rohan Hartly Mills, Robyn Jordaan, Jamie Cowie,
Caroline Faigan, Whitney Nicholls-Potts, (second iteration) Shelley
Simpson, Robbie Fraser, Mish O'Neill, Jazmine Rose, (third
iteration) Daniel Ellison, Krystina Kaza, Priscilla Hunter.
This project series is intended to be the preliminary series of
shows to instigate the conversation around connecting the
unconnected. The space is a platform for experimental curation. It
would be ideal to continue operating in this location, with your
help we can. The monthly rent is $966 (incl gst.)
In the first iteration of '((188.8.131.52.) (1.))', '1ST XFive',
J.A. Kennedy chose five individuals to contribute a work.
Those first Five contributors were asked to choose one person they
wished to be part of the second iteration, '2ND XFour'. One
recommendation was then removed from the invitation list.
This control was taken to initiate a progression, and to limit the
series life span. In the third iteration, '3RD XThree', the four
individuals from the second choose and again one recommendation was
removed. And so on, until the series has hosted a solo show
for the last person standing or a group show for all
The rental agreement is currently on a month to month basis and we
hope to complete this series with two more shows. The intention is
to continue into the coming months and host further shows.
A Boosted campaign has been started so this project space can
continue and develop new projects once this series is
Currently this project space is an extension of J.A. Kennedy's art
practice. The link to any curatorial discourse is based on aspects
of pairing the medium to a surface/space. This project space has
been a useful space to host shows that support others and their own
practice. The intent of the space has developed from this simple
basis, but its intention is to provide a context in which to
connect the previously unconnected.
