The collapse of space that occurs in the internet is a profound shift in the way culture makers and everyday people produce community, relationships and influences. As part of an experiment at The Alternative Art School, they have created a collaborative exhibition between artists across the globe. Working in tandem with alternative spaces, they asked an artist at TAAS and one artist suggested by their global alternative art colleagues to produce art works across geography and empathy. While not every part of the world is suffering in the same manner during the pandemic, it is safe to say that everyone has been impacted.

The project had two parts. Part 1: The Alternative Art School asked each artist to talk about their last year with their collaborator, then make an artwork based on that conversation. Part 2: They asked each artist to also exhibit the work of their collaborator in their own context. Thus it was a two-fold exchange. The first in empathy and the second in geography.

The Alternative Art School is interested in producing new forms of community and additionally new forms of exhibit making inspired by global cultural exchange.
