Endorse Art Collab Ideas Of Others

Collaborative art projects

Blog post from the series of Socialising In The Art World

Since early 2019 I have taken part in Peer2Peer sessions in Somos Art House in Berlin. Anyone who is interested in art can bring their art project, do a presentation and then the rest of the group gives feedback.

It is a brilliant idea how the art professionals can help each other out because once you are out of the art school, it is hard to find the constructive critical feedback.

Moreover, it is a great opportunity to meet the artists and gain more info about their upcoming projects.

In summer 2019 I took part in a collaborative project in Italy which resulted in a group show Anecdotes On Origin presented in A Plus A Gallery at Venice.

The art exhibition was organised by 19 art professionals from 15 countries. This project gave me the opportunity to collaborate with people from India, Iran, Malaysia, USA, Portugal and Swiss just to name a few.

The aim of the exhibition was to cast a doubtful eye on a question of origin as it seems to be more important where you are from than who you are as a person.

In February 2020 I invited Suzanne Levesque, who responded to my open call in November 2019, to take part in another collaborative project I was working on called Opse Project by Miltos Despoudis.

The purpose of the project was to give a space to individual artists to introduce their art practise.

The art talks took place in front of a live audience, they were recorded and edited. Later on the edited recordings were given to the artists at their disposal.

Taking part in the projects of others is an excellent way how you can expand your own network of relevant contacts such as artists and other art professionals.

This way you will broaden your horizons and later on you might conduct interviews with some of the artists like I did for my first interview published in Blue Bee Gallery Magazine.

More info about writing for Blue Bee Gallery Magazine in the post Meet The Artist.

So, writing articles or conducting interviews with artists & art professionals from the art industry is another great way to get involved in the local art scene
