The book, The Exhibition of a Film, follows an eponymous exhibition that includes the work by forty-six international artists, and begun with a question: What would an exhibition be like if we changed the environment from the gallery, museum, or Kunsthalle, to that of the cinema? “The Exhibition of a Film”, an exhibition for a context, namely a film screened in a cinema and constrained by the properties particular to that social environment, is, at one and the same time, a film exhibited, a film of an exhibition and a filmed exhibition.
Expanding on the issues raised through the exhibition, the books is articulated through a series of interviews, commissioned text and reprints that examine the relationship between the exhibition and film: their temporalities, their space, their mode of production.
