Why do artists collaborate?

Monday 30 January 2017, 11:00 – 13.00

Collaboration has always been important to the production of art, but as a method it has moved center stage within contemporary art practice and become a critical force. For instance, a renewed interest in collective work appears as an alternative to the predominant focus on the individual so often found in the art world. However, the form of – and basis for – collective activities is still developing. Exploring this field, we see artist groups, partnerships, collectives, and project related to long term partnerships. What does collaborative working afford the artist and does collaboration change what art is or could be?
