The Culture Laboratory Collective comprises a diverse group of artists working loosely around the question of social cohesion within the context of aesthetic fragmentation. While focusing collectively on a synthetically established social identity the work presented paradoxically strives to break free of group-think aesthetics in favor of the individual voice, the point of dissonance opposing the attempt at collaborative cohesion. Retaining a focus on craft and the object, Culture Laboratory Collective operates as an ongoing investigation in media interchangeability and aesthetic fluidity.
Our first exhibition “So Say We All… Sort Of…” was at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. J.D. Durham, curated and coordinated the exhibition. On Friday, July 31st 2009 we had the Closing Reception at 5PM and the Gallery Talk at 3PM.
