Save Event: Why do it together when you can do it alone?

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


An exhibition that showcases the work of 18 artists and photographers who have been exploring collective ways of working in relation to their own practice.


It borrows its title from a talk given by David Morris (editor of Afterall) and Grace Samboh (Indonesia-based curator) during the spring 2019 After School programme.

The exhibition can be perceived as the organic output of all participating artists, workshop leaders and organisers, having gone through a process of collectivity, and asks how it has influenced their work and how they work.

Stepping in and out of photography, installation, sculpture, text and video, the works in the exhibition also engage with a wide range of personal and collective interests, from questions of romance, ageing and desire, to collective assembling and storytelling and the relationship between body and image.

Exhibiting Artists:
Bayryam Bayryamali, Laura Blight, Jacqueline Ennis Cole, Sarah-Jane Field, Lucas Gabellini-Fava, Rachel Glass, Pamela Gomez, Eva Louisa Jonas, Dawoon Kim, Michaela Lahat, Rowan Lear, Debbie Naylor, Joshua Phillips, Loreal Prystaj, Marie Smith, Marie Sutter, Christel Pilkaer Thomsen, Joanna Wierzbicka.
