Collectives and Federations: Why Do Artists Collaborate?
Mall Galleries was founded through the effort of different artist federations in Britain, and since then the need for collectives and federations, in essence, hasn’t changed. Creative partnerships play a key role in the arts: large-scale galleries and individual artists all rely on a network of people supporting their creative output. The Collectives and Federations panel discussion will focus on these interpersonal relationships; exploring the logistics, hows, and whys of artistic collaboration.
This event is part of FBA Futures 2019, the UK's biggest annual survey of emerging contemporary figurative art, mapping new practices and ideas of representation and draughtsmanship, held at Mall Galleries from 8 to 19 January 2019.
