Curated by Annika Kristensen, Greater Together assembles eight artist projects that complicate individual notions of authorship to consider ideas of collaboration and cooperation as deliberate and productive means of agency and solidarity in a complex and changing world. While acknowledging the inherent challenges of working together, and the often-utopian ideals of collectivity, the exhibition explores various models of artistic collaboration to consider broader ideas of community, communication and cooperation – both in the discipline of art and in the wider global, networked world.
The catalogue features a foreword by Max Delany, ACCA’s Artistic Director; a curatorial essay by Annika Kristensen; an essay by leading curator and writer on contemporary collaboration, Maria Lind; texts on each of the eight projects in Greater Together; and an essay on accompanying project WORK/SHOP by Laura Couttie; alongside full-colour documentation of the works in the exhibition.
