From Arkhipov to Zittel: Selected Ikon Offsite Projects 2000-2001

This volume documents projects in Ikon’s off-site programme from 2000-2001, featuring 22 selected projects encompassing painting, performance, video, installation and sound, and confounding expectations of where art can be seen and by whom. By their very nature, the projects in Ikon’s offsite programme during this period suggested a non-hierarchical approach to artistic practice. They articulate a desire for artistic gestures that have continuity with non-art environments, art that circumvents gallery space – usually detached and abstract – and goes straight to a public that often has little or no direct experience of art. Many of the works were situated outside of the city centre, within the rural and regional areas of the wider West Midlands, thus offering audiences there aesthetic opportunities usually reserved only for those living and working in a sizeable metropolis.

Featured artists include Ceal Floyer, Anthony Howell, Patrick Killoran, Julian Opie, Tatsumi Orimoto, Cornelia Parker, Simon Patterson and Andrea Zittel. This publication functions as a kind of handbook to these projects, listing them in alphabetical order and providing a short explanation of the principles behind each artist’s practice and the work they have produced for Ikon. The publication also includes a set of colour photographs of the projects to accompany each artist profiled.
