Cultivating Collaborative Creative Community
Participating Artists, Curators & Collaborators: David R. Modler, Samuel H. Peck and Desmond Beach
This site responsive exhibition is part of the ongoing international art making exchange project known as tet[R]ad". The primary tenet of this initiative has been to promote collaborative artmaking, community engagement and activating audience participation. Originally developed by David R. Modler and Samuel H. Peck over a decade ago, this latest rendition will also include the work of Desmond Beach. Within this installation we aspire to cultivate a creative forum with members of Baltimore’s communities through a variety of art actions and social practices. We wish to foster restorative justice dialogues and build bridges between stakeholders with visual journal exchanges, collaborative drawings and assemblages that encourage collaboration in idea exchange and cultural production. The ultimate goal is to engage with the local community to give voice and agency to participants that develop meaningful connections.
