AYV Exhibition: ACVic Centre d’Arts Contemporànies

June 8, 2015

Artistic creation on its own is inspiring and beautiful to see but there is something special about creatively collaborating with others and the unique results that occur from it. This is why it is exciting that ACVic focused their theme for their exhibitions on collective creation.

ACVic Centre d’Arts Contemporànies Exhibition

The name of the exhibition was Mechanisms of Collective Creation. It took place at ACVic Centre d’Arts Contemporànies and lasted from February 20th until April 18th, 2015. Over the two months the exhibition attracted almost 600 visitors! Everyone was welcome! The exhibition was visited by families, youth, elders, artists and students from elementary schools, high schools and universities.

The process of collective creation can be observed in a diverse range of artistic, social and business projects. From redesigning a school yard, to devising initiatives to promote reading among young people, a green space for users of green lines, or solutions for people with disabilities; what all of these projects have in common is that they have been created and built using contributions of people from many different fields and profiles who have worked together.

So what is co-creation exactly? Here is what ACVic has to say:

“Co-creation involves rethinking many of the assumptions related to the world of art and creativity: passing from the individual creative genius to the collective genius. The works resulting from processes of co-creation are by all participants, and authorship is diffused. Creativity is not the exclusive virtue of a group or of a person with a certain profile. We are all creative, but sometimes we lack the tools to express this creativity.”

The participants of the exhibition were CoCreable with Another Crep in the Wall by the collective Morir de Frío, Sense Remitent by the collective Ramart and Give Your Opinion! with pupils from Institut La Plana de Vic.

There were two central insights that arose from this experience. The first was that if we work together, we will have great results. The second is that we can find art everywhere as long as you keep we keep our eyes open to it!
