Culture Laboratory Collective.
Artists working loosely around the question of social cohesion within the context of aesthetic fragmentation
While focusing collectively on a synthetically established social identity the work presented paradoxically strives to break free of group-think aesthetics in favor of the individual voice, the point of dissonance opposing the attempt at collaborative cohesion.
A national collective of artists exhibiting internationally.
The exhibition is the record of the of the conversation.
Between 9 and 12 members engaged in the collective over five years.
Over 5 years the international collective collaborated on fourteen exhibits.

The act of exhibition is the embodiment of the communal discourse, wherein dissonance becomes discourse.
