Unrealised Potential was a collaborative group exhibition that aims to explore the creative potential of artists’ unrealised projects, blurring the lines between artist, curator, visitor and producer.

Mike Chavez-Dawson together with artists Sam Ely and Lynn Harris present an amassed collection of over 60 artists’ unfulfilled proposals, offering visitors the opportunity to purchase the right to interpret and realise an artist’s idea.

Liam Gillick’s unrealised proposal PLANTA DE ANODIZADO was the first Unrealised Potential to be realised, reconceptualised and produced by artists Brian Reed and Len Horsey. Documentation will be displayed along with Gavin Wade’s Strategic Questions 2002-2010 ‘What is wealth?’ publication, a question which he recently commissioned RELAX (chiarenza & hauser & co) to answer.
