Collectively Assembled: 28 Visits, One Show
9th Annual tART Exhibition, Curated by Yulia Tikhonova
January 26 – March 16, 2013
Opening Reception, Saturday January 26, 5-7pm
Over one year, a chain of scheduled studio visits builds the exhibition. One member visits another’s studio and selects work for the show. The receiving member then interprets what she feels is central to her selected work. With that concept in mind, she goes on to visit another member’s studio to select work. The process continues until it circles through every member. The resulting exhibition features not only each member’s work, but also each member’s interpretation and response to another member’s choice of work, thus creating a gestalt – the show itself.
We have tracked the process via a blog, http://tartcollective.blogspot.com/. Each visiting member posts her selection and explains her selection process. The blog will complement the final show, giving the viewer intimate engagement with the process of creating the show. Consideration of the subjectivity of curating is witnessed through the roles of personal and collegial dynamics within the collective.
The final installation is overseen by visiting curator, Yulia Tikhonova, who will contribute to the aesthetic presentation of the show. This will be the final unfolding, the visiting curator’s presentation of the body of work selected from the studio visits.
tART Collective is a contemporary feminist artist collective in New York City. Members maintain their individual art practices and are committed to maintaining a close community through post-graduate studio visits and to offering support through the sharing of ideas, information and resources. In addition to an annual group exhibition, the collective also produces Zines, engages in collaborations and presents workshops and discussions. Recently, tART Collective has exhibited at the Verge Art Fair Miami Beach, and members have participated in the TINA B. Contemporary Art Festival in Prague and presented on the collective at the CAA conference in New York and at the Open Engagement conference in Portland.
Yulia Tikhonova is a Moscow-born, Brooklyn-based curator. A graduate of CCS, Bard College, she is the founder of the Brooklyn House of Kulture, a grass-roots, experimental curatorial model created to promote public awareness and practices that strengthen culture's central role in civic life.

"I have always considered my relationship to the Armory show masochistically charged. And, like a beaten woman, I return every year, because I believe it is both my duty, and that it can change..."
