Collaboration: Artprize 2014
September - October 12, 2014

The UICA builds creative community by fostering new forms of expression, promoting collaboration, and providing genuine experiences with contemporary art. For this year’s ArtPrize Exhibition we are taking that mission to heart and have created an exhibition that echos the behaviors of the UICA to create new connections, reactions and interactions. Themes of community, identity, learning, nature, and more are woven throughout the gallery spaces. The creation of these works expands the artist network and results in new ideas, interactions, and conversation. Collectively, the exhibition shows how the artists are reimagining collaboration by taking it beyond the traditional models of artist workshops or arts collectives, to a place where the collaborator is YouTube, your own failure, systems and structures, or a city.
