A Collection of Bostonia Collectives
“A Collection of Bostonia Collectives” curated by Fish McGill
Those who believe artists can thrive toiling alone in their studio are
living a lie. Today’s success stories feature artists from many mediums
coming together to create projects impossible to conceive on their own.
These collections of collectives around the world team up and tackle large
scale public works of art, museum exhibitions, murals and much more.
Contemporary artists ranging from Friends With You to Jeff Koons to The Yarn
Bombers to Banksy and beyond all work in concert with their teams of
specialists to realize amazing projects. Nobody is going at it alone anymore
especially in the Hub of the Universe, the city with the Dirty Water, The
Capitol of the Commonwealth, the fair city of Boston Massachusetts.
Boston is the proud home of a collection of collectives creating an exciting
body of work. Each of these crews hop over the traditional paths of gallery
representation and getting work into museum collections in favor of silk
screened prints and shirts, live mural painting in new arenas for art, salon
style shows in restaurants and bars, knitting up and down sign posts,
creating superhero personas to live out through their art and much more.
You are invited to see this array of talent for the first time collected in
one spot specifically featuring collaboration amongst artists. See the ins
and outs of how they work together on projects. Enjoy their personal
drawings, paintings, photos and more. Get insight into the inspiring process
of working with a crew of fellow artists. Start a team of your own.
