Jai McKenzie wrote on Sam Smith's Permutation Set exhibition at ARTSPACE, Sydney. The text appears as part of Column 6, published by ARTSPACE.
Listening, speaking and performing are the threads that bind the works and texts platformed in issue 6 of Column, covering Artspace’s artistic program of January to September 2010. Beginning with Sean Lowry’s timely observations on the relationship between music and visually centred cultural formations, Column 6 follows the voice as it makes itself heard across works by Tony Birch & Tom Nicholson, Tamar Guimarães, Sam James, Ms & Mr, Jayce Salloum, Sam Smith and Wilkins Hill. The issue also sees greater priority given to artist pageworks as a means of expanding the possible uses of the publication, with the contribution of significant projects by Simon Denny, Sean Rafferty and Justene Williams on logic, mapping and spanglemachine makers.
Column is a bi-annual periodical that acts as a site for the critical contextualisation, elaboration and extension of Artspace’s ongoing program of exhibitions, performances, residencies and public programs.
Sam Smith was part of two Sanctioned Array screenings on November 2nd and 3rd at WHITE BOX, New York.
