BREAKING DOWN THE EXHIBITION

In the spring of 2016 Kyle finished his thesis exhibition, (insert title.) The exhibition was designed to ask the question of what is an exhibition? What can an exhibition be? Is art required? He also set out to use the exhibition as a social experiment to look at how viewers use the information provided by institutions such as titles, labels, wall-text, and gallery guides.

Kyle obsessively looks into the exhibition and how it can be hacked and mashed up. Wether that is through using Instagram as an exhibition platform, or having people re-arrange bulletin-boards to create social commentary, he believes the exhibition reaches farther than four white walls.
