What Is An Art Collective? | Tate

What is an art collective? Look no further. We are grateful to the following collectives and the innumerable others whose work makes this film possible. Amber Film and Photography collective have been embedded within Newcastle’s working class community for over half a century. Their building houses an independent cinema, gallery, film production company and international photographic archive allowing them to control the production and distribution of their socially engaged work. Art Boyz is a collective of young Londoners made up of friends Anayo Nkwocha, Yvonne Shelling & Amardeep Sura. The self-appointed family pooled their resources to push their careers in the arts to the next level. Their counter-cultural work seeks to exceed the limits of fine art and straddles music, sculpture, fashion and youth work. Baesianz is a collective and platform based in London, that celebrates Asian artists from all over the globe. Founded by Sami Kimberley, Sarah Khan and Roxanne Farahmand, their work is inclusive of all Asian heritage identities, including mixed heritage, Asians, trans, queer and gender non-conforming Asians. Cooking Sections was formed in 2013 by Alon Schwabe & Daniel Fern├índez Pascual after an architecture programme led them to think about food as a tool to investigate the construction of space. Since then, their expansive approach to exhibition making has brought a wide range of environmentally engaged expertise to their practice. Alongside art practice they lead a studio unit at Royal College of Art’s School of Architecture. Project Art Works is a collective based in Hastings since 1997. Their collaborative fusion of art and care challenges traditional approaches to inclusion. Working with neurodiverse artists and makers, Project Art Works reimagines the boundaries of what a socially engaged charity, community organisation and artists studio can be. Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries is a Seoul based web art collective that fuses multimedia software, original music and poetry to channel their artistic impulses. Ever responsive, ever irreverent, their work has travelled the world to be experienced in online and traditional gallery spaces. In their fourth decade of collaboration, the group remains as prolific and consistent as ever.
