These are networks of surrender, whose ambition is not the cohesion of a finished, consumerable product, but the construction of new communities for creative work.</p></em><br /><br /><p> "Networks of surrender" sits in the &lsquo;Communities&rsquo; sub-section of the 2011 Gwangju Design Biennale alongside four other invited cities: Johannesburg, Macau, Medell&iacute;n, and Tel Aviv-Jaffa. The exhibition is a collaboration between three practitioners/academics Samantha Spurr, David Burns and Adrian Lahoud from the Design Architecture &amp; Building Faculty of the University of Technology Sydney, and Nicole Bearman, a cultural programs producer, also based at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.</p>
