Happy 2015 from Collective Show

Dear Friends,

We hope you had an incredible 2014 and you’re looking forward to 2015! We are excited to announce that Collective Show is now a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which means your donations are now fully tax-deductible. As before, 100% of your donations go directly towards organizing Collective Show’s “group shows of groups shows” around the world. With your help, since 2009, we have organized exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles and Mexico City featuring over 130 contemporary art collectives made up of over 1100 individual artists.

Please consider making a donation and sending the following link to your friends and patrons before year-end: Donate Now! Even a $20 donation will help tremendously in mounting our next shows.

For 2015, we are making plans for Collective Show Tokyo and for Collective Show Detroit! We are also continuing our advocacy efforts for artist collectives, including by adding more coverage of collectives on social media and on our website. Please send us recommendations, updates and articles about collectives doing awesome things! And if you’d like to help with our 2015 shows, please drop us a line!

Wishing you all the best for 2015!

The Collective Show Team

The Dependent Art Fair

Perhaps New York’s most collective-friendly locale for art-viewing during Armory Week 2011 is this one night event. To be held in a hotel room not far from its inversely titled art fair, the Dependent Art Fair will exhibit sixteen various artist groups and gallery spaces.

Silvershed, organizers of Collective Show, is one of the groups exhibited so be sure to come by on Friday to experience this gem of a show. And join us at the Silvershed immediately following for the afterparty!

‘Office Hours’ at Forever & Today, Inc.

The latest exhibition at Forever & Today, Inc. is one that places the viewer in a space that is both singular and varied. Ian Pedigo’s transformation of Chinatown’s storefront alternative art space takes the notion of a small business office and, while applying it to the art curator’s workspace, exposes the inner workings of the curatorial process from its seams.

2nd Annual Queer Pile-Up!

2nd Annual Queer Pile-up Flyer

Another smashing success, the 2nd Annual Queer Pile-up! proved beyond doubt that local queer artists working in all mediums are an industrious, thoughtful and motivated bunch. With over 200 guests coming through the doors during the evening and 40 artist participants, the outcome was truly inspired and inspiring. Paintings, drawings, photos, book arts, sculpture, community outreach, videos, wearables, ‘zines and performance shared a nurturing and welcoming space. The result was surprisingly cohesive given the premise of the show: a temporarily repurposed storefront studio cleared out for one evening, filled with art on a drop-in basis, and cleared out again at the end of the night. Big thanks to Amy Adler for once again loaning us her studio!
