Additional Events

Outside In: Artist Run Collaboratives and Commercial Spaces

Critic and curator Catherine Taft moderates a discussion on artist run collaboratives and commercial spaces. The discussion investigates the means by which artists-run spaces and collectives enter the commerical art system. Comprised of artists, curators and writers actively involved with collectives in LA, New York, and Berlin, the panel will unravel the complexities of how collaborative practice is situated 'inside' or 'outside' the commercial system.
