Slightly less soul destroying than a SHOW & LISTEN, a SHOW & TEXT allows the artist to interrupt half way through the observations from their peers with an artists’ statement, which has the effect of either confirming their ideas about your concepts or completely alters the way they view your work. Either way, it is beneficial for the seeing as you get lots of exciting feedback, and everything’s based upon feedback. Still, they are not fun, sitting in an airless room all day long while people criticise and comment on your work, while you try desperately not to take offense reminding yourself that this criticism is CONSTRUCTIVE, ugh.
But this was what I showed:
