Round Robin Collective is pleased to announce their residence at A.I.R. Gallery in DUMBO for the month of August. Members of the collective will exhibit new works and host a series of events throughout the month. Current collective members and exhibiting artists include: Mary Billyou, Amanda Browder, Caroline Burghardt, Lisa Caccioppoli, David Coyle, Martin Esteves, Jamie Kim, Deirdre McConnell, Katherin McInnis, Christopher Rose, Stephanie Rothenberg with Dan S. Wang, Janos Stone and Audra Wolowiec.
Round Robin Collective is a Brooklyn-based group of artists established in 2008 to forge connections and create a space for dialogue in and out of the studio. Meeting for monthly studio visits, members work in all media, fostering a dynamic exchange across disciplines and outside the commercial sphere.The collective hosts exhibitions and events in both conventional and non-traditional venues, extending the spirit and discourse of the cooperative model to a larger, public community. Previous projects organized by Round Robin Collective include Ecstatic, a month-long exhibition with over 30 artists and multiple events held in March 2010 at St. Cecilia’s, an abandoned convent in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Future projects include LIVE/WORK SPACE, an exhibition of collaborative works by members and guests at CAMEL Art Space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in September 2011.
As the first artist run gallery for women in the United States, A.I.R. Gallery provides a professional and permanent exhibition space for women artists to present work of quality and diversity. A.I.R. Gallery was founded in 1972 by a group of women artists who desired to create a space to establish a voice and presence through their collective energies. Within Round Robin Collective, a similar energetic and open model of support for individual members’ personal projects is sustained through group undertakings. Round Robin Collective in Residence will embrace diverse practices as the group finds its own space to inhabit within the walls of A.I.R Gallery.
Extending Round Robin Collective’s practice of studio visits, several members will give artists talks and discuss their exhibited work with each other and the public on Thursday evenings starting at 7 pm throughout the month (excluding the opening night). The schedule for presentations is: Thursday, Aug 11 – Caroline Burghardt, Martin Esteves, and Katherin McInnis; Thursday, Aug 18 – Mary Billyou, Deirdre McConnell, Stephanie Rothenberg, and Janos Stone; Thursday, Aug 25 – Amanda Browder, Christopher Rose, and Audra Wolowiec. Mixed Use, a selection of videos and films on the alternative use of space, organized by Mary Billyou will screen on Tuesday, Aug 16, 6-8 pm. Further events and changes to the schedule will be announced on the Round Robin Collective website and Facebook page.
In conjunction with the exhibition Round Robin Collective in Residence, the Collective is pleased to announce their first edition portfolio. Ten of the artists in the Collective have created special editioned works on paper, prints, photographs, and small sculptures which will be available either individually or as a portfolio of the entire collection. Showcasing the breadth and scope of this unique group of artists, the proceeds for the portfolio will partially fund future public Round Robin Collective projects.
