James & Jones
31 Proposals is an online collaborative project comprising of James & Jones proposing 31 projects and exhibitions. From 1 June to 1 July 2009, James and Jones will take it in turns to propose a different idea for an exhibition every day. There are no stipulations upon the proposals and no boundaries on what can be achieved or imagined.
The project intends to act as catalyst to investigate the creative process of how exhibition ideas are formed. Through this process J&J aim to question the curatorial process and the curators role in the creation of an exhibition.
