Bringing together twelve critically acclaimed artists from London, Shanghai and Amsterdam, the MyPeople Project explores the subject of networking. The project is a collaboration between a group of artists, curators and event organisers culminating in the exhibitions, Solar Plexus.
This project suggests a new approach to developing a network for an intercultural dialogue and exchange between artists from different countries. All the artists in this show were invited to join the project by other participating artists, creating a true network of peers. The process will result in exhibitions in London, Amsterdam and Shanghai. The exhibitions will present work from these twelve artists, while promoting this groundbreaking networking model with an open dialogue, an exchange of ideas, knowledge, skills and cultural experiences between the artists and audiences, locally and internationally. An online and offline combined platform will be used for the interactions between artists, viewers and participants.
As part of the Solar Plexus exhibition, which opens on 31.8.2012 at the Space Station 65 gallery, the MyPeople project offers several events accompanying this international and cross-cultural collaboration.
In "Intimacy Entangled", a discussion panel session held on 30.8.2012, several participating artists, Yaron Lapid, Ellen Nolan and Colm Lally, will present their take on the meaning of intimacy in the contemporary hyper-connected world of networks, shrinking distances and - global collaborative art projects.
