Transition - Transformation - Metamorphosis

Each exhibition project undergoes a process of becoming. This process has many possible permutations dependent on content, actors/players, duration, materials, and more. Like the caterpillar entering the chrysalis and emerging as a new entity ready to take wing, each exhibition goes through an extraordinary process of transformation when elements and outcomes are creatively negotiated.


Chrysalis is also an exhibition metaphor as an ephemeral and temporary shell or shelter of an idea with transformative potential for the mindset of the visitor. If the exhibition leaves the visitor cold, untouched, uninspired, then what is the point of it all?


Under the guidance of the long-standing external faculty member of the Department for Image Scinece

- designer, teacher, writer and performer   Frank den Oudsten -

the Masterclass "Chrysalis" participants will work together as a single entity to develop a group exhibition over 6 intense days in the Atelier of the Kunstmeile Krems - emerging on the final day.


Exhibitions are inevitably developed as team-based endeavors, whether large or small. Good teams with meaningful outcomes embrace and utilize the challenges of their different backgrounds by drawing upon their strengths from the various communities of practice in the creation of something new.


The Masterclass Chrysalis becomes a rewarding and authentic experience through diverse collaborating participants, and thus encourages designers, fabricators, conservators, curators, educators, IT specialists, scientists, humanists, philosophers, communicators, artists, and life-long-learners to join us in November. The maximum number of participants is based on availability of distributed places as Individual, Exhition Development Students or Image Science Alumni.
