CoCA: Making Space
CoCA’s exhibition for winter explores collaborative art practice and why it forms, thanks to the interactive, lively MAKING SPACE from June the 9th to August the 20th.
Collaboration and collective working has become the norm in the arts in post-quake Christchurch, making CoCA the perfect space to host six diverse artist collectives and over 30 individuals practising at the cutting-edge of the Aotearoa art community. The gallery will host works, events and the members of art collectives FAFSWAG, FIKA Writers, Fresh and Fruity, Mata Aho Collective, SaVAge K’lub, and The Social, aiming to create connections between diverse communities to create art, encourage conversations and potentially change how we view art and its potential for social change.
Areas of the gallery will become home to each collective, and an collaboration between CoCA, Christchurch Art Gallery and The Social will even see a temporary artist residence in the form of a caravan appearing on the Montreal Street forecourt.
