Collective Show is pleased to present “Collective Show New York 2010,” an artist-organized exhibition of contemporary collaborative art groups recently established in New York. This collaboratively curated “group show of group shows” features DIY artist-run spaces and projects, emerging curatorial initiatives and local independent publications.
Occupying a growing space between established non-profit organizations and commercial galleries, groups in this show are working within fluid definitions – in flexible and adaptive conditions that are fundamental to their working models.
Thirty art groups will exhibit their work during this show at PARTICIPANT INC, a not-for-profit gallery on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Artworks, posters and publications will be on display. Screenings and performances will also take place during the exhibition.
Participating groups include: 179 canal, 25CPW, Artist Accomplices, AVA, BHQFU, Boffo, Camel Collective, The Chrysler Series, Daily Operation, Eyelevel BQE, FARIMANI, Forever & Today, Forte, HKJB, The Holster, the jogging, Kunstverein NY, The Metric System, Parlour, Primetime, The Public School, Silvershed, Submerged Art, Vector Productions, Why and Wherefore, YES, and Collective Show 2011 hosts: ACP (Los Angeles), Human Resources (Los Angeles), Night Gallery (Los Angeles) and Temporary Contemporary (London).
