Artistic collaboration has become a defining feature of the contemporary art world. Challenging the historical ideal of the single artist, wrestling with his or her own genius in isolation, Togetherness explores what happens when influences, materials, skills and perspectives are combined.
This varied exhibition presents different examples of collaborative creativity and examines how we negotiate and navigate being and working together.
Featuring Turner Prize-winning collective Assemble; John Wood and Paul Harrison; Emma Biggs and Matthew Collings; Juneau Projects; Malcolm Ashman and Inger Karthum; Neil Bromwich, Zoe Walker and Michael Pinsky; Peter Ford, Rachael Nee and Yutaka Yoshinaga; Sara Dudman and Debbie Locke, and Andy Holden and Steve Roggenbuck, this original exhibition raises wider questions about group dynamics, activism and authorship.
Togetherness will also include specially-made new works by Emma Biggs and Matthew Collings, Andy Holden and Steve Roggenbuck and Clawson and Ward. This varied exhibition features artists from India (Raqs Media Collective), USA (Guyton/Walker), Switzerland (Fischli and Weiss), France (Claire Fontaine).
