DESCRIPTION

CoLaboratory examines the nature of collaborative art by creating a visual record of this process and exploring the cultural constructs that support it.  Using video projections and mobile structural interventions, projects by Chicago artists' collaboratives ED JR. and (ƒ)utility Projects were created independently within each group, and are integrated here with reference to this space and the interactions encountered in the development of the exhibition. Visitors are invited to adjust the structures on which video projections are shown, amending and re-forming the evolving images as they move. Four gallery events will allow visitors to participate in ED JR.’s painting practice. The videos from these interactions will be screened later in the exhibition. CoLaboratory will address the inherent frictions and challenges of collaboration, as well as its fruitful outcomes.

 CoLaboratory is curated by Annie Morse with ED JR. and (ƒ)utility Projects

 The exhibition and related programming is co-sponsored by the Department of Multicultural Affairs and Critical Encounters.
