Draft Score for an Exhibition
Draft Score for an Exhibition is both a book and an exhibition conceived by Pierre Bal-Blanc, director of the CAC Brétigny.
The book documents an oral presentation given by Pierre Bal-Blanc to a jury of professionals in 2010, as part of his application to curate the 7th Berlin Biennale. Devised as an exhibition in several acts, the session adheres to the rules of a score performed by its author or by a third party.
The exhibition has been presented at Le Plateau, Paris; Secession, Vienna; CAC Brétigny; Institut Français du Portugal, Lisbon; Artissima Art Fair, Turin and Index-The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, Stockholm.
Besides offering the reader the opportunity to examine the documentation of the previous performances, the book is meant to be an actual score to be performed by any potential reader.
