Mutualisms

Mutualisms is a collaborative curatorial project that explores the ways in which networks of friendship and artistic collaboration can be used as a model for curating. Artists based in Chicago and the Netherlands will participate.

‘Mutualisms’ look into artistic strategies for finding hospitality and exchange in the context of contemporary art practices as well our own social domain. ‘Mutualisms’ reflects upon the reality of a world that is more and more characterized by an increasing flexibility and extendedness of our professional – friend – and artistic network and reflects on how we place our selves within this interconnected community. Working with a transparent model of structuring and altering artistic contexts, networks and relationships we aim to put together a show with a critical understanding of how an artist negotiates ones own position within contemporary discourse and our lived realities.
