Para-Sites is a distributed exhibition project where given modes of production, circulation, and consumption are “hijacked” or re-appropriated for creative purposes. It is a network of distributed practices that operate in the same time frame with a common theoretical and tactical approach. This project starts from the realization that there is a significant lack of platforms and opportunities to show and promote non conventional and noncommercial creative practices and that such practices can better encounter publics and build a network without relying on the traditional gallery system and its physical and economic constraints.
