'COLLECTIVITY'

ARTISTS BLAZE NEW TRAILS WITH TWO-PART, TWO-STATE EXHIBITION AT DURDEN AND RAY'S NEW GALLERY

 

 

Curated by Daisy McGowan, Lana Duong and David Spanbock 
Artists include: Carl Berg, Jorin Bossen, Sijia Chen, Ian Fisher, Donald Fodness, Ben Jackel, David Leapman, Laura Shill, Summer Ventis, Ashley Williams and Xi Zhang

"Collectivity" will investigate points of connection between artists from two international artist collectives based out of the Western United States – Hyperlink (Colorado) and Durden and Ray (Los Angeles) in concurrent exhibits across two states. 

Collaboratively curated by UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art Director Daisy McGowan and Durden and Ray artists Lana Duong and David Spanbock, "Collectivity" will explore the intersections and connections between 24 artists (12 from each collective). Each exhibit location will include “mini-installations” of two to three artists. A collaborative, monumental, and site-specific installation, Beset on All Sides: Triangulation, manifested at the Colorado Springs iteration of the exhibition, inviting all artists from both collectives to participate. 

Artists are forging new models for the art worlds they want to inhabit and making them reality by working together – collectively – with other artists. Artist collectives are as varied in their scope as are the individual artists who band together to launch, grow, and sustain them across the globe. 

Collectives take a “yes, and...” approach to the art world, and in so doing amplify the possibilities for their work to connect with a broad and diverse audience. In similar spirit, the curators of this exhibit are open to the possibilities of collaborative, non-hierarchical curation and experimentation and aim to build connections to new audiences through the two exhibitions. 

By manifesting exhibits and projects on the periphery of the traditional art world, these artists embody the Western ethos of blazing your own path and defining art world success in new ways.
