Join us for our next exhibition:Contact*Connect*Collaborate
Contact*Connect*Collaborate Curated by Beth Hart & Vera Scekic January 10 - February 14, 2010
Contact*Connect*Collaborate explores the nature of international artist collaborations in a world made permeable by modern communications, technology and travel. Artists from around the world are connecting with their American counterparts in order to examine political, philosophical, sociological and historical issues from both particular and global perspectives. The formats of these artist collaborations vary widely, encompassing video, mixed media installations, performance, prints and textile works. The resulting projects point up the possibilities of creative collaboration without negating the real differences in cultures and situations and express the artists' deep desire to make human connections in a complex world.
Participating Artists include:William Andersen & Maryam Hosseinnia, David Carlson, Betsy Stewart, and Ashraf Fouad, Michele Feder-Nadoff & Kanaan Kanaan, Mary Hark & Gabriel Boakye, Chris Lawson & Leang Seckon, Jordan Martins, Joazito, and Lanussi Pasquali, Corinne Rhodes & Guadalupe Victorica, Jin Soo Kim & Bohyung Kim
