About a month ago I was approached to be part of The Seven Project, a collaborative art project that is the brainchild of Peruvian-born, Denton-based Visual Artist and Creative Director, Christian Millet. This project is a revolutionary concept, and a new way for Artists to work together. As solitary Artists we are often left to our own devices to toil away in the studio, struggling to explore and develop concepts on our own, all the while keeping our process under wraps. This project turns that upside down and introduces a completely new way to work together.
Here's the bare bones of it:
The Seven Project is a collaboration between 7 artists from different styles and backgrounds. The idea is to create 7 fine art pieces between 7 artists in 7 days each.
Each of the 7 pieces will be a timed, rotational collaboratiosn between all artists. Considering that the 7 artists live in various cities throughout North Texas, this is a challenge in and of itself.
To make this even more challenging to the artists (and to the project itself), each artist has been assigned a different rotational process point for each piece created.
Once the compilation of all 7 pieces has been completed, we will mount an exhibition (to be announced) to benefit a local charity.
