15 Days: A Collaborative Work

"15 days: A collaborative work" is a new attempt where the artists mutually interact and create one common work. This is the first time that we explore the possibility to create a work in an exhibition space. In this way, we aim at reducing the distance between artists and curators, trying to find a spontaneus way for the realization of the work. At the same time, it is our intention to favor an exchange between the individual thought of each artists. The concept of "Collaboration" is based on the experimental practice to create a work where artists use a common space all together. The topic of the work is related to three ideas: interaction, confrontation and hardness of this innovative practice .

In this project, we have invited 15 artists to collaborate together on creating a work 15 sq. Meters big. In 15 days, every artist will have 24 hours and a 1 sq. meter of space to realize their own work. The final result will be a mosaic that shows the personal style of the artist and the influence of this collaboration on the artists' practice.

The realization on site will be hosted in the White Box Museum of Arts that in addition to the space will offer a cage lifter, 2 working platforms, various artists' tools like propylene, brushes, colors and slices, an air brush compressor (including all the accessories), a video projector, a 15 sq.meters  canvas, a professional Camera and a video-camera. Other tools can be freely brought by the Artists themselves to better realize their own concept.

The order of the artist and their own canvas position will be decided by draw. Every artist should take care only of their square meter. They will decide the style and the topic of their part. Every artist will be completely free on the work realization, and can decide to link their work with the neighbor artists or to realize a work with a different topic. They will not be limited on their habitual style but they can explore new ways of expressions. Autonomy is the first rule of this project.
At the end of the exhibition, 15 different works will create one main work. A Video and a catalogue will show the final result.
