In the context of Beyond Credit a group exhibition of Georgian artists presented in partnership with the Center of Contemporary Art – Tbilisi, Georgia, three New York-based artists will reflect back on their recent experiences with Art in General’s International Collaborations program in the Eastern European region. This series of artist talks will include individual presentations on projects shown in Tbilisi and Riga during 2015, and tackle larger concerns around trans-national exchange, including questions of political and infrastructural difference, site-specificity, value distribution, productive failure and experimentation.

While firmly rooted in New York City, Art in General has a long history of working internationally. The International Collaborations program provides emerging artists abroad with the opportunity to create and present new work in New York, introducing audiences to exciting artists from regions of the world that are otherwise underrepresented in the U.S. The program also offers New York-based artists opportunities to engage with, and present works at, international partner institutions. The program’s institutional partnerships span two or more years to facilitate an exchange that is reciprocal in its goals and provides the capacity for audience and network building.

Donna Huanca: Polystyrene’s Braces and Ezra Wube: Palindrome were exhibited at the kim? Contemporary Art Center (Riga, Latvia) and Adelita Husni-Bey: Postcards from the Desert Island film, installation and workshop were part of the 2nd Tbilisi Triennial, organized by the Center of Contemporary Art (Tbilisi, Georgia) in 2015.
