INFRASTRUCTURE 1. An underlying base or foundation especially for an organization or system. 2. The basic facilities, services, and installations needed for the functioning of a community or society, such as transportation and communications systems, water and power lines, and public institutions including schools, post offices, and prisons.

Exhibition curated by Therese Stowell
12 May - 19 June 2005 at Studio Voltaire, London

For Infrastructure, artist Therese Stowell has selected a group of international artists whose work addresses the visible and invisible systems we live within, ranging from belief systems to the built environment and the internet.  These systems intersect, forming an ubiquitous, largely invisible network that shapes who we are and what we can do.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Stowell is creating an overall infrastructure diagram that maps and connects the systems present in the work, while placing them in the larger context.  This diagram will make visible the vast network of facilities and processes that enable us to live the way we do. It will be reproduced as a poster and will serve as the invitation for the exhibition, as well as being available for visitors to take away with them.
