Aperture has invited the artist-run super PAC, For Freedoms, to curate and implement an improvisational exhibition and series of dialogues that investigates the photographic collective as a model for responsive artistic production.

This two-week project will feature live events that bring together several active photography communities to discuss the practices, benefits, and methodologies of collectivity, while focusing on the question of what defines “the political” in art-making today. Each collective is invited to contribute a visual prompt for discussion and selected works to be presented in the space; the main propulsion for this activity, however, will be a series of in-person activities including meet-ups, salon-style conversations, and other events.

The collectives included in the exhibition are EverydayClimateChangeInvisible BordersKamoinge,Piece of CakeRawi(ya), and WRRQ.
