We Become Each Other’s Unmakers

Workshop: February 1 – March 6, 2014

Exhibition: March 19 - May 2, 2014

Opening Reception: April 4th Friday 5:00-7:00pm


WE BECOME EACH OTHER’S UNMAKERS, the fifth installment in the Collaborative Exhibition series pairs graduate students of Interdisciplinary Arts and Creative Writing. Through exploring the act of collaboration as a process of discovery, the work considers the engagements of becoming and un-becoming as mutually informative practices, of un-making as re-making, and therefore making within a space of perpetual motion and (inter)change.

Comprised of interactive artworks that undergo a process of transition and modification, the exhibition will be an ongoing experience that takes place both inside and outside the gallery space. Seeking to explore, challenge and/or redefine the concept of intellectual ownership, the works will span across disciplines in order to investigate the nature of collaboration as a dialogic interaction.
