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