The Dissolving Cube presents work which corrupts the boundaries between object, word, performance, sound, the viewer and the viewed. The work includes visual, poetic and sound art forms which blend together to dissolve artificial boundaries between separate art works. The show will pose questions concerning art's purpose. The work will interact with the audience of the school and local area. Several artists will be working with students to produce work for the show. The cube will mutate, dissolve and reach out down Portman Place, beyond Globe road from four different zones. The Dissolving Cube incorporates an on-going exhibition, a symposium “Art, Learning and Liberation” and a grand finale of artists’ performances, “The Return of The Repressed”
