Featherweight Portable Museum – media art happening consists of two events.
The first event is held at the end of November 2011 in Catalyst Arts
Gallery, Belfast, Northern Ireland. The second event is held at the
beginning of February 2012 at Rajatila Gallery in Tampere, Finland.
Featherweight Portable Museum aims to bring non-profit art associations
together in collaboration between different art associations around Europe.

Featherweight Portable Museum is a concept borrowed from Susan Sontag’s
book, On Photography, in which she analyses how we perceive photography and
how it transforms our self-image and society. We want to see the beautiful,
the strange and something that makes us see the extraordinary in the
ordinary.

Featherweight Portable Museum addresses the problem of how emerging artists
can show their work without undue economical strain and offers the answer by
using galleries slack time in between exhibitions and other unused spaces.
With a portable museum -concept we are collecting art works that are easy to
transport around art associations in different countries. The mix of Finnish
and Irish/British art in this event is a celebration for the art in slack
spaces, a tour of media art where nationalities come together, give
presentations about their actions and uses empty free space to show media
art in different forms. After the events in Tampere and Belfast the media
art screening will travel to different art associations, who are willing to
have a screening in their space for a day or two.
Enquires should be directed to catalystarts@gmail.com
