Collectives Encounter 2011
December 16, 2010 § Leave a comment
Collectives Encounter is curated by Yasmina Reggad, the director of Photo Festivals. It will consist of five interventions by six photography collectives: ASA, Human Endeavour, The Photography Collective, Vea Collective, Wideyed, and special guest collective Rawiya.
Collectives Encounter 2011 has a blog on which the six participating photo collectives will be sharing their creative processes in the run up to ‘The Flâneur‘, the collective exhibition that will showcase four especially commissioned artworks by ASA & Wideyed, The Photography Collective, Vea-Collective and Rawiya, plus Human Endeavour‘s existing ‘Degeneration’ series.
There are several things about this exhibition commission that are particularly interesting and exciting for us. The opportunity that Yasmina has given us to collaborate closely with ASA’s photographers Armando Ribeiro, Arun Nangla and Srinivas Kuruganti, is fantastic. As for Yasmina herself, this is the first time any of us at Wideyed have really worked with a curator and it’s proving to be a brilliant experience.
And ‘Mapping the Flâneur‘ is the title of the exhibition we’ve been commissioned to produce with ASA. We’ll all be talking about it more as we work out the details. Stay tuned.
