When two or more artists bring their distinctive approaches together, the nuanced collision of ideas is often more than the sum of its parts. The collaboration complicates the art process, often in unforeseen and exciting ways. Both parties learn from the experience and, even if the collaboration ends, the subsequent work is affected by the process.
When we view work made by a collaborative process, we are able to play a complex game of attribution in which we explore which elements or decisions were made by which collaborator. This can be an enriching way to explore an artwork as it activates the process of attribution and draws our attention to a work of art as the product of the personal agency of others.
It Takes Two to Tumble is a series of exhibitions featuring artists from different media or different approaches working together to create a piece or pieces for exhibition at Tumble Contemporary Art. Artists who apply to the project will be paired up with another artist to prepare an idea for exhibition at Tumble. Participants will then have several weeks to produce said work or works before the exhibition.
Pairings will be made by the Gallery in order to maximize the potential of each collaboration.
Applications are due Friday March 9th 2012, and should include the folllowing:
