Imagemaker: Mr. & Mr. / Continuous Joint Effort

Presenters: Garth Armundson and Pierre Gaur

Saturday, October 21 - 1:00PM to 1:50PM
LiNC 314

We are collaborators making politically driven artwork: we undermine the myth of the artist as an independent, individual mad genius, who is isolated and secluded. Our artistic collaboration is an extension of our relationship – it's about vulnerability, giving and exchanging. We actively combat the notion of "self-reliance" and "do-it-yourself" with asking for help, sharing ideas, and working shoulder-to-shoulder. We recognize that image-making is a form of cultural collecting.

Using our most recent project, Mr. & Mr., to navigate the presentation, we will present and discuss ideas about collaboration, studio practice, and professional development informed by our own experiences.
