Contemporary Collaboration is an international exhibition project in which the stimulation of alternative cooperation processes is central. The Contemporary Collaboration exhibition presents a group of artists who are all connected in different international networks and work intensively together in both their artistic processes and their professional professional practice. The concept for this exhibition is therefore aimed at stimulating new and synchronized forms of collaboration or 'Contemporary Collaboration'.
The objective of 10dence is the stimulation, introduction, organization and realization of alternative, inspiring and inventive processes to promote and support professional art practice. A breeding ground that cooperates intensively within various international networks with the aim of providing an independent platform for artists, for presenting and exhibiting their work at home and abroad. 10dence, in collaboration with artists' initiatives such as Global Art Project (GAP) and Artist Run Alliance (ARA), investigates how the creation and production of art can be cultivated by means of innovative network concepts and the development of alternative breeding grounds and residences that facilitate collaboration, experimentation and the multidisciplinary practice combines with strategic sustainability within individual professional practice.
Under the title 'Contemporary Collaboration', initiator and visual artist Ron Weijers has compiled this international exhibition as curator. A presentation by an international group of artists associated with the 10th initiative. The participating artists are all connected in an international network and they all work together intensively within both their artistic work process and their professional practice.
