Weekend Server

A day of conversations about dreams and gentle one-on-one informal experiments with exchanging art via telepathy, small games, thought experiments, etc.

Dream Works is an art fair prototype introducing forms of acquisition and circulation appropriate for the diverse manifestations of art practices today.
Dream Works envisages artworks as material dreams whose conscious or subconscious transactions and transferences assert new ways of socialising and disseminating artistic practices.

Dream Works highlights the various implications of artworks for and in their dreamers: the patron, spectator, bystander, participant, collector, curator or the artist themselves.

Initiated by Galerie founders Simon Asencio and Adriano Wilfert Jensen in collaboration with Weekend Server, Dream Works is a commercial forum and temporary exhibition format for artworks and institutions to reexamine structures of support, diffusion, acquisition and mediation. With its first edition planned to take place in Bergen in the autumn of 2019, Dream Works aims to institute a new generation of commercial art fairs, stimulating new economies for artworks that challenge their own conventions.

Weekend Server creates alternative contexts for the circulation of art, collaborating with artists and other organisations to realise conditions of manifestation that do not yet exist in the established institutional landscape. The structure of Weekend Server adjusts to the needs of the project.
