Over the past few months the Solvent Collective, a group of 10 UTD alumni, undergraduate and graduate students, has been planning Working Title, an ongoing installation at Ro2 Art’s downtown project space. They kicked off the project this past Saturday and will be inviting two additional “generations” of artists to continue to add to their installation over the next two weeks. Members of Solvent Collective will be blogging for Art&Seek about the project. Today, Janan Siam writes about the working environment ahead of Saturday’s exhibition.
It is dawning on me as I watch Anthony and John work together, unplanned, that teaching to and learning from one another are such wonderful primal instincts of peace and resolution. It conjures thoughts of prehistoric man teaching his fellows to gather, hunt, make fire, paint cave walls, etc.
