Perfect partners: Independent groups put on projects that plug gap between museum shows and art fairs

Published on Jul 1, 2014 3:43 PM
 

Are two heads always better than one? It would seem so, in the case of independent visual arts institutions.

Collaborations between such entities allow these smaller, non-state-run initiatives to pool resources, expertise and influences to create the space for them to better pursue their common goals.

These independent players may take the form of artist-run spaces or exhibition and research centres linked to tertiary institutions, but they all occupy a space between the dominant state-run or state-funded museums and the large swathe of commercial galleries.

While state institutions may be limited in their educational role by having to serve a wide audience, commercial galleries are in the business for profit.
