As part of their participation in First Among Equals, Machete Group has organized a series of performances that will take place in the exhibition gallery. This, our final event, will be run by The Order of the Third Bird, whom we have invited to explore they key term “Attention” with gallery visitors. The afternoon will consist of a kind of training session in sustained attention to artworks. They describe the event as follows:
Art and Attention: The Protocols of Practical Aesthesis. An extramural foray by indiscreet members of The Order of the Third Bird, who may be expected to lead interested and suitable participants through peculiar rites of sustained attending on made things. Temporary metempsychosis may occur, but must not become permanent. Space limited.
