Adam Cruickshank: Terms & Conditions

Various times during Bookworks (24 July – 21 September 2019)
Free entry

During Bookworks, Adam Cruickshank enacted his Terms & Conditions project. Comprising a performative publishing workshop in the gallery and including contributions from guest participants including Xavier Antin, Terri Bird, Lizzie Boon, Alex Margetic, Ian Milliss, Spiros Panigirakis, Selena Repanis and Rachel Schenberg, the project explored the nature of the relationships between exhibited art practices and the printed matter that both supports and frames them.

On most Thursdays and Fridays throughout the exhibition, Adam worked in the gallery, joined at various times by his interlocutors. Visitors were free to join them as they cut, glued, and generally attempted to provoke the power of printed language.

Adam Cruickshank is an artist, graphic designer and intermittent publisher. He teaches at Monash University’s faculty of Art Design & Architecture and is pursuing doctoral studies at RMIT’s School of Design.

Adam Cruickshank participated in Bookworks at Monash University Museum of Art, 24 July – 21 September 2019.
