The Apparatus is s year long project running throughout 2011 to mark Arnolfini’s 50th anniversary. This series of exhibitions and events will focus on the conditions of the art world today, particularly its system of belief and valuation, its role within society, and its relationship to the wider political economy. The Apparatus is about the ‘making of’ artists, of artworks, of institutions, and of cultural infrastructure.
