Arising from a curiosity about the habits of artists, The Inventory of Behaviours is an ongoing collaborative project comprised of multiple parts; through a collection of artists’ responses to a callout and the subsequent staged participatory events that bring their rituals and habits in to sharp focus, we propose that the ordinary behaviours of artists may have much to tell us about how art is made and learning is experienced:
At Tate Exchange, a week-long participatory performance event was designed to explore the daily routines and otherwise un-accounted for activities of internationally acclaimed, early career and student artists. Instructions are enacted and performed by young people, community groups, students and commuters. A platform discussion comprising an artists, educational psychologist, neuroscientist, art writer and ethnographer focussed on what the Inventory of Behaviours reveals about the conditions of the production of artworks today.
