Collective Show is pleased to present “Collective Show New York 2010,” an artist-organized exhibition of contemporary collaborative art groups recently established in New York. This collaboratively curated “group show of group shows” features DIY artist-run spaces and projects, emerging curatorial initiatives and local independent publications.

Occupying a growing space between established non-profit organizations and commercial galleries, groups in this show are working within fluid definitions – in flexible and adaptive conditions that are fundamental to their working models.

Thirty art groups will exhibit their work during this show at PARTICIPANT INC, a not-for-profit gallery on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Artworks, posters and publications will be on display. Screenings and performances will also take place during the exhibition.

Johanna Constantine "Veil" at PARTICIPANT INC.

On the evening of June 20, 2010 in conjunction with the exhibition "Dead Flowers," a group show based on the work of actor/director Timothy Carey, a group of performance pieces were presented at Participant Inc. "Veil" by Johanna Constantine is a mysteriously disturbing yet poetic "dance" alluding to flight and perhaps the rebirth of the soul. A full report will be forthcoming on the James Kalm Report channel.
