Contemporary Collaboration 2.0

Contemporary Collaboration 2.0 is the follow-up to an international exhibition project that focuses on stimulating new forms of multilateral cooperation. The exhibition presented the work of an international group of artists who are all connected to different art networks and who collaborate intensively with each other in both their artistic processes and the development of the further professionalization of the various professional practices.

Contemporary Collaboration 2.0 showed a selection of contemporary artists whose work relates to subjects related to the concept of diversity in all its facets and its representation and interpretation. The exhibition was part of a broader program of exhibition projects that are being developed by the 10dence platform for the benefit of the affiliated artists in the Netherlands and Belgium, in which they jointly ask themselves the question to what extent they can be relevant when it comes to issues related to diversity. and inclusion.

The international group exhibition Contemporary Collaboration 2.0 was a continuation of the previous exhibition under the same name in the Klinkenberg galleries I and II in October 2018, which has again been on display in a slightly more extensive form from 5 to 28 September 2020 in the Klinkenberg I and II and the Voorhout galleries at Pulchri Studio. Under the title Contemporary Collaboration 2.0, organizer and visual artist Ron Weijers curated this international exhibition.

The objective of the 10dence platform is the stimulation, introduction, organization and realization of alternative, inspiring and inventive trajectories to promote and support professional art practice. A breeding ground that collaborates intensively within various international networks with the aim of independently offering artists a platform for presenting and exhibiting their work at home and abroad. 10dence, in collaboration with artist initiatives such as Global Art Project (GAP), Artist Run Alliance (ARA), High Art Fridays (HAF) and Inspirational Magazine, explores how the creation and production of art can be cultivated through alternative innovative networks and residencies that combines collaboration, experimentation and multidisciplinary practice.
