Give Us A Look

A performance work presented by Monte Masi, Give us a Look explores the projects of the 2012 Next Wave Festival as an artwork in its own right. Monte will be everywhere he can during the festival, working to promote and contextualise the work of others, enthusiastically joining the dots and constructing constellations as the festival progresses. As host, highlighter, documenter and supporter all rolled into one, Give us a Look idiosyncratically appropriates curatorial and promotional practices to provide added contextual energy to the practices and projects on show as part of the festival.
