(ON) ACCORDANCE was a collaboration between Grand Union and or-bits.com, exploring the possibilities of working across sites of production and distribution through the presentation of new online commissions and offline versions of web-based artworks.
While we launched the online exhibition Accordance, Grand Union presented a gallery exhibition of artworks on display on or-bits.com (1 December 2012 – 19 January 2013).
(ON) ACCORDANCE presented offline versions of a selection of artworks produced for previous or-bits.com online exhibitions. Five artists, Irini Karayannopoulou, M+M (Marc Weis and Martin De Mattia), Rosa Menkman, Damien Roach and Richard Sides, and their respective artworks were selected by Grand Union curators in response to the Accordance editorial.
As part of (On) Accordance Open File, a curatorial project by artist Jack Brindley and curator Tim Dixon, presented the event and torrent file Hashfail, featuring works by Rhys Coren, Polly Fibre, Joey Holder, JK Keller, Yuri Pattison, Pil & Galia Kollectiv and Oliver Sutherland (Fri 14 December, 7pm at Grand Union and online).
