"Shared Creations"

  • Bridgeport Art Center 1200 W 35th St Chicago, IL, 60609 United States (map)

Shared Creations presents art created by pairs of artists working collaboratively.  Although the practice of working collaboratively may be encountered throughout the history of art, it seems to contradict the common modernist idea that true creativity can only be born of a solitary struggle within the psyche of each individual artist.  It has been suggested that the popularity of collaborative work these days may be linked to the realms of business, commerce, and popular media such as film and TV where products are developed by groups of people working together.  

Undoubtedly, the idea of collaborative art raises many fascinating questions, and each pair of artists in Shared Creations approaches the practice quite differently, in their paintings, constructions and photographs.
