Curated by John O'Brien, Criss-crossing is a group exhibition that explores collaboration in art making. This exhibition focuses on LA – based artists who overtly collaborate with other peers, be they artists, writers, or people from other fields.

Criss-crossing acknowledges the multiplicity of identities which converge in art making today.  Whether it is within the context of an academic environment such as an MFA  graduate  program, a loose confederacy of emerging artists such as an artist-organized exhibition program, or in the extended studio practice such as an established artist who jobs  arts of their overall production out to peers and friends; the art world is increasingly an  interdependent and collaborative universe where the criss-crossing of boundaries regarding  the ideation and fabrication of art is a constant. While the art market still depends upon  putting the names of single individuals on the marquee, this exhibition celebrates the ways in which multiple strands of art making, art thinking and art speaking wind together in an  output of collaborative synergies.

This is a particularly significant exhibition to hold at this site since the Kellogg University Art  Gallery was directed for so many years by Patrick Merrill, an artist and curator who brought  to the foreground, the collaborative spirit and interpersonal practice of the arts today.
