Parcella at Impex Contemporary Art Provider, Budapest
Exhibition of proposals, ideas, and documentation of the Parcella Series.

The Parcella series was a collaboration between Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum and Lumen Photography Foundation. This final exhibition at Impex presents the entire process as it was realized from curation to realization. It features documentation from the actualized projects, and also presents the proposals and ideas received from all of the invited applicants.

For the series, artists were invited to submit proposals for site-specific work to take place during the summer of 2007. From the invited applicants, Skulpturenpark worked with a joint German-Hungarian curatorial team to select seven final projects. The goal of the project was to open the idea of sculpture as a process and strategy with the potential to reveal the site's social and historical layers while adding a creative layer of its own.
