ReMix

18 Artspace Artists // September 3 - October 30 2021

ReMix is a collaborative exhibition featuring the work of 18 Artspace artists. The exhibition is inspired by the community of diverse artists working across multiple media under one roof.  Once the pandemic started, many artists experienced a creative block. Studio Artist, Adriana Ameigh saw a potential solution to this problem through the creative exchange of work among her peers.  Instead of covering up, or tossing out, unresolved work, the art was swapped among the participating artists. The new recipients of the work approached the piece with fresh eyes and could incorporate their own style and techniques – resulting in interesting collaborations that reveal both artists’ marks. In addition to the creation of new works, the project became an avenue for experimentation and discovery removing the boundaries of one’s personal style or medium. Works of art that somehow became stuck, remained unfinished, or unresolved are reimagined and transformed by another artist and represent the power of community and collaboration.
