RGB is the title of an experiment, wherein live footage from inside the studios of those engaged in the production of art in Cairo is projected onto the walls of Townhouse's First Floor gallery. In a form of interplay, said producers are in turn able to watch transmitted images of what occurs simultaneously in the exhibition space. RGB is based on the idea of conducting traditional studio visits, but its virtuality offers a platform for interactions of an unconventional kind.
The project borrows its title from the initialism "RGB", the additive, red-green-blue color model that is predominantly utilized to display images in electronic systems such as those of Tvs, projections, smartphones and LED screens. In RGB at Townhouse, projections are the sole element that unites the trichotomy of audience, producer and exhibition space, thereby creating an additive model of its own.
RGB is concerned with issues of performance and self-consciousness, myths surrounding the production and consumption of art, authenticity and the folding together of the physical spaces of both production and exhibition.
