CO- alludes to the processes and relationships that are inevitably constructed when we
produce and present this thing called art. Materials and artists co-conspire; curators
collaborate, cohabitate, co-depend. Looking at the processes that define each of these
artists, we were driven to ask how we define ourselves as cultural workers, as keen sets of
eyes, as transparent, empathetic co-dependents, as wellsprings of partial answers to hard
questions about what and who we are. By presenting a group of works organized around a
set of co-indications of process, we aim to show how for each artist the act of carving out
aesthetic space—whether it is conflictual or conciliatory—is always co-produced.
