The Collective Experiment Exhibition

January 12, 2018

Featuring work by Joshua Kochis (BFA 2015) and co-curated by Anna van Schaap (BFA 2010), The Collective Experiment explores the idea of ‘The Art Collective’ by looking at how artists function within collectives, how two different collectives function independently in the same city, and what happens when you bring separate collective members together in the same exhibition. The idea being that collectives are not just about collaboration, but also about expansion and inclusion, as well as individuality within the larger group; bringing individual voices into conversation with each other.
