Part of the Meeting at a Distance series

Constructing frameworks for collaboration, artists working in collective practices execute their own interpretation of shared work. This effort often moves beyond process, and becomes a defining ethos of the artwork itself. Learn more about the intricate hivemind of artist-led collectives with this inside look at collaborative work.

In this installment, we join art publisher Thomas Cvikota of ETC-Industries/C.Editions; Angee Lennard, founder and director of Spudnik Press; and Chicago-based artist Candida Alvarez. The three will discuss the notion of collaboration as it relates to making print editions in the Chicago arts community.

The guests will address their approach to staying productive under current social distancing practices, and how they continue to explore editions without the full collaborative experience that the process often requires. The larger question of “what is an edition, anyway?” will be discussed as it applies to each of the participants and their history and future in print.

Meeting at a Distance presents recurring conversations, started in a time of quarantine. The series features artists from the Mana Contemporary community, connecting with each other to discuss this new time, and how it has shifted their practice, process, and thinking.
