DESCRIPTION

The publication is a compendium of images and writing that documents and examines JCHP’s recent exhibition at Lanchester Gallery Projects, Coventry. It includes writing from Terry Atkinson, Richard Birkett, Alex Bowen, Michael Hampton, Lynda Morris, Matthew Poole and JCHP, poems and prose from Brecht’s unfinished Messingkauf project and images of the exhibition and events. JCHP ask if it is now possible for an artistic practice to side-step, outwit, or otherwise present a productive critical challenge to the current culture of what they call “exhibitionism” in the field of art. The crucial point of contention here is that “exhibitionism”, as they see it, is the principal form of “the economy of visibility” in the art world, where the relations of distribution of art have become the principal form and modus operandi of the relations of production for artistic practice in general. The publication comprises of a series of posters and two books produced before, during and after the exhibition. Jeffrey Charles Henry Peacock (JCHP) is the collective practice of artists Dave Smith and Thom Winterburn. http://www.bannerrepeater.org/events/then/185-critical-decor-a-short-organum-for-exhibition
