Why have artists become increasingly drawn to creating collectives What does working in a group offer to its members, and how is an artist collective’s success measured by themselves and others? We consider how these teams gain strength in numbers and work towards common goals.

She is the Subject Coordinator for Articulation & Curation at GUDSKUL: Contemporary Art Collectives and Ecosystem Studies, an art educational platform founded by Grafis Huru Hara, Serrum and ruangrupa in 2018.

is an artist and writer who is interested in new modes of articulation for the agentic formation of the physical and social self across vectors of gender, sexuality, race, class and culture. Hilary is a part of the collective ‘Pure Ever’, an alliance of people whose goal is an aspiration to find commonality and col-lective foresight through nuanced and intense forms of art making; one that hopefully occupies a more generous spirit of collaboration, creativity, networking, and solidarity-making.
Rifqi Amirul Rosli
is an artist in Singapore whose works often deals with the in-between of things: states of suspension, transition, liminality. He probes into the construction of personal boundaries and speculative states that defines one’s purpose and sentimentality towards a place. He has taken part in exhibitions such as ‘an edifice w/o’ (Objectifs, 2020), ‘The Fabric of Sympathy’ (ICAS, 2020) ‘Nyanyi Sunyi’ (Gillman Barracks, 2018), ‘4D: Not Another Dimension’ (ISLANDS Peninsula, 2019).
Soh Kay Min
is a writer and curator whose practice weaves between the interstices of semiotics, theory, and fiction, towards emergent modes other-worlding through queering and reorganising. Recent curatorial engagements include ‘Inventory: Reconsidering Curatorial Practice’ (2021) and the 17th Istanbul Biennial (2022), which reimagines the biennial as a site of compost. In 2018, Kay Min and Wayne co-initiated ‘AWKNDAFFR’, which recently produced the anthology ‘Can, Cannot, and Other Options: Between Defiance and Desire, Towards Fuller Lives’ (2021).
is a visual art practitioner who makes psycho-sensorial works relating to the everyday, and is fascinated by the arrangement of the logics of aesthetics, economy, and ideology. He has exhibited in Greece, Japan, the Netherlands, Russia, Singapore and the UK. He has also participated in residencies in Chiangmai, Thailand (2012), Istanbul, Turkey (2015), Biella, Italy (2016), Romainmôtier, Switzerland (2017), and Singapore (2021).
