Opening Reception
Saturday, April 25th
Watson Hall

New York, NY
Angers, France

Dialogues is a collaboration between fifteen French and fifteen American or New York-based artists, paired up to make work for this two-part, four-space exhibition. Each pair of artists works together to translate each other's work and collaborate to produce a series of projects engaged with issues of communication, miscommunication, translation, and separation. The realization of all the collaborations will open as an exhibition of sorts simultaneously at Columbia University and ENSBA in Angers, with a live video broadcast between the two spaces. After the close of the exhibition, DIALOGUES will migrate to a subsequent video screening and round table discussion with the artists at Artists Space in New York and Bétonsalon in Paris. An edition published as both a document of and supplement to the exhibition, will be available for purchase at all four locations of the project, as well as by request at potluckcollective@gmail.com.

POTLUCK is a project formed around ideas of convergent creation, consumption, and discussion, and functions as a series of migrating group exhibitions and events. Founded at Art in General in 2007, the project has a two-part goal to both act as a liaison between the academic and the exhibition setting, as well as to foster community by concurrently interlacing local, yet often separated, student arts communities. For more information on past and upcoming projects, please visit www.btwpotluck.com.

Sponsored in part by the Arts Initiative at Columbia University. This funding is made possible through a generous gift from The Gatsby Charitable Foundation, the Barnard College Department of Art History and Visual Arts, Ecole Supérieure des Beaux Arts d’Angers, France, Ecole Supérieure des Arts décoratifs de Paris, ICART, Ecole du commerce de l’art et de l’action culturelle en Europe, and ARTISTIK RESAU.
Additional support provided by Bétonsalon, Paris and Artists Space, New York.
