A group of artists consider the nature of blankness as a signifier of creative potential (in the sense of capturing the dilemma of approaching a blank piece of paper, digital file, gallery space or canvas with the intention of creating something). As such, the exhibition will ask questions such as: “What is a blank space?”; “Can there be a blank space?”; “What are the power dynamics associated with framing or designating a blank space?”; and “What are the aesthetic potentials of blankness?”.
