The hope of something different.

Fremantle, Chris



Participatory art is a rich and diverse practice. Much of its energy comes from the creative tensions between different theories and visions, as may be seen from some of the reaction to the Turner Prize jury's choice. But art is not only intellectual and rational. It is felt, perceived, practiced and experienced. Some of the most creative discussions happen within projects, between artists and participants (or, as I'd prefer to say, between professional and non-professional artists). That is why I think of it as a restless art.
