- audience: passers by/people interested in fine art/people invited to private view
- lack of control over layout

PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE: BEAR PIT
- passers by
- food vendors
- people who ‘hang out’
- doesn’t exclude anyone but some may choose not to come to this part of town
- graffiti - socially and politically motivated works
- all works in mural form but could encompass sculpture/installation/performance
- space to reflect on work
- but fair amount of distraction - noise/weather/sellers/traffic
- informal setting
- outside but art undercover from rain (in subways)
Professional Practice: comparing two prospective exhibition spaces
- issues with ownership
- issues with non-permanence
- benefit of passers by
- issues of less control over the environment
- benefit of it looking more clean and professional
- benefit of it being a tourist attraction
- issue of it being fine art orientated
- benefit of more control over sound, light etc
QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER WHILST MAKING A TEAM VISIT
- audience, who?
- impact upon audience, benefits?

- what work does the space display?
