The individual and the collective
Masterclass with artists from the 19th Biennale of Sydney
Collectivity in artmaking, as well as the desire to make art for the wider collective, are strategies employed by artists to critique the forces of commodification and institutionalisation to which art is subject.
Acknowledging that particular attention has been paid to the modes and motives of ‘collectivity’ in the past decade, artists in the 19th Biennale of Sydney: You Imagine What You Desire discuss their practice in relation to this phenomenon.
This masterclass is designed for tertiary students and interested members of the public.
Chair: Gary Sangster
Artists: Nathan Coley, Siri Hermansen, Deborah Kelly
