The 2019 Emerging Curator Mentor program is focused on curatorial research and the development of an exhibition at Blindside.

A grey zone is characterised by an absence of regulation and an indeterminacy of form. Within contemporary performance there exists two such grey zones: the grey zone in which performance is exhibited—a hybrid space between theatre’s black box and the gallery’s white cube—and the grey zone of digital technology and social media, a now ubiquitous form through which performance is documented and distributed. 'Connecting in the grey zone' situates itself at the point where these two grey zones converge, in order to interrogate the function of digital technology in this space.

The project poses questions concerning the symbiotic relationship between these zones, the role of the body and the audience in this context, and the part that social media plays in the current popularity of performance art. Over the course of three weeks, ten artists and five writers will address these questions in order to better understand performance and its shades of grey, and reiterate the importance of the body in this space.
