An invitation to dialogue is an ongoing public conversational performance which explores dialogue as the labour or work of art. Manifested in a gallery, at a market, on a bridge, on a pedestrian crossing and at conferences, each iteration is a response to a call for works or a commission, and so the work is considered in some way a response to invitations to dialogue. Lasting from between a few minutes between conference sessions, up to a full working day, the invitation is extended through a poster which invites people to join John in conversation.
