To Sept 17 Greater Together – presents eight artist projects that complicate individual notions of authorship to focus on ideas of collaboration and cooperation as a means of agency and solidarity, in a complex and changing world. While acknowledging the inherent challenges of working together, and the often-utopian ideals of collectivity, the exhibition explores various models of artistic collaboration (from conscious, pragmatic decisions to divide skills and labour; to the natural result of long-term friendships, romantic partnerships or family ties) to consider broader ideas of community, communication and cooperation – both in the discipline of art and in the wider, global, networked world. Artists: Bik Van der Pol, Clark Beaumont, Courtney Coombs & Antoinette J. Citizen, Céline Condorelli, Field Theory, Goldin+Senneby, C.T. Jasper & Joanna Malinowska and Patrick Staff. A ninth project, WORK/SHOP, engages four artist practitioners and collaborators who have developed conceptual retail projects for the ACCA bookshop as a physical and metaphorical extension of the exhibition. Artists: Debris Facility, Get To Work, OK YEAH COOL GREAT and Paradise Structures.
