Other Spaces Projects is a curatorial agency that specialises in facilitating unexpected encounters with contemporary art. Its core activity is in curating, exhibition management, art education and the development & implementation of strategies for public art, off-site projects, and interventions in museums, historic contexts and unexpected places.
On 'Other Spaces'
The name of this curatorial agency comes from Michel Foucault's 1967 essay 'Of Other Spaces,' where he used the term "Heterotopias" to describe places that serve as "counter-sites," existing outside of the ordinary. These 'Other Spaces' challenge and contest the space we live in. According to Foucault, 'Other Spaces' mirror, reflect, represent, and refer to ordinary sites, but at the same time suspend, neutralise, invert, and contradict those sites.
