Since 2013, Eyelevel Gallery has existed as an itinerant gallery—eschewing the traditional model in favour of more experimental forms of visual art presentation. Responding to success in offsite projects, Eyelevel has taken ownership of its reputation as a wandering body, energetically pursuing the model’s potential for artistic facilitation. Sitelines responds to this tradition—and investigates the projects undertaken in these first years as a “spaceless” gallery. Including contributions by Ursula Handleigh, Angela Henderson, Francesca Ekwuyasi, Julie Hollenbach, Andrew Patterson, and Grace Stratton, Sitelinesexists as both a catalogue of a program, and an artistic document in and of itself. This is a shift away from speculative exhibition catalogues, traditionally published alongside of an exhibition. Sitelinesis published by Eyelevel, and is designed by Jayme Spinks.
