Rivalry Projects is excited to present collective selection / selective collection, on view from April 28-June 16, 2023. This exhibition includes over 40 international artists and is curated by Camilø Álvårez of Samsøñ (Boston, MA). Join us for the Opening Reception on Friday, April 28, 2023 from 5:00-9:00 pm.
This exhibition considers collective action – how to make people move, be moved, and be moved by them. Defined as an action taken together by a group, whose goal is to enhance their condition and achieve a common objective, the exhibition utilizes this idea to consider how the aggregation of our choices impacts how we see, experience, and relate to the world — for better or for worse.
Concurrently, this exhibition rebukes the impulse of compartmentalizing visual art, instead asking questions around cultural divestment, permacrisis, performative nihilism, bodily relations, manufactured relatability, and the aspiration for controlled narratives. collective selection / selective collection revels in the ambiguity of an anti-narrative, or moreover, a narrative which is not “…strictly autobiographical nor auto-fictive, but rather gleaned from a mixture of experiences and temperaments…”
