Hello, I'm Katie and I shall be blogging about the forthcoming exhibition, COLLABORATE, at The Hive, Shrewsbury. I shall be working closely with the exhibitions curator, Helen Foot, and the team at The Hive to get things ready for the show. So I shall be talking to the artists, asking them more about their work for the show and posting info on here for you to get to know more about who is involved. The exhibition will run from the 30th November until the 20th of January 2012.
Here's the paragraph that's in the Hive Programme advertising COLLABORATE...
'Collaborate is an exhibition showcasing the crème de la crème of Shrewsburys creative talent, who by sharing their skills with each other have enhanced their commercial design practice. From a mixture of creative backgrounds; photography, fine art, fashion, textiles, digital media, and illustration, collaborate looks to document the creative process behind these exchanges. The result is a story of interdisciplinary projects.'
In my first meeting with the team on the 12th October I met a few of the exhibiting artists. I was introduced to the group and I got more of an idea of the shows theme. COLLABORATE will showcase a mixture of creative disciplines and rather than showing a final article it documents a process. Artists work may be added to throughout the duration of the show, so the work will not be final, it will be gradual and the public will have chance to see the works grow from idea to idea.
