Artists are forging new models for the art worlds they want to inhabit and making them reality by working together – collectively – with other artists. Artist collectives are as varied in their scope as are the individual artists who band together to launch, grow, and sustain them across the globe. Collectivity will investigate points of connection between artists from two international artist collectives based out of the Western United States – Hyperlink (Colorado) and Durden & Ray (Los Angeles) in two exhibits across two states.

Collectives take a “yes, and...” approach to the art world, and in so doing amplify the possibilities for their work to connect with a broad and diverse audience. In similar spirit, the curators of this exhibit are open to the possibilities of collaborative, non-hierarchical curation and experimentation and aim to build connections to new audiences through the two exhibitions.

By manifesting exhibits and projects on the periphery of the traditional art world, these artists embody the Western ethos of blazing your own path and defining art world success in new ways.
