Chaos, Connections and Collaboration

Chaos, Connections and Collaboration

Tate St Ives

St Ives

17 May 2021 – 31 August 2021

The Tate Collective Producers worked with artists Saelia Aparicio, Georgia Gendall (creator of Forced Collaboration) and the Tate St Ives Young People’s Team during lockdown to experiment, collaborate and create artworks in response to the Haegue Yang: Strange Attractors exhibition and to explore the theme of personal and global chaos.   

Tate Collective invite audiences to get involved by sharing their own ideas of What Chaos looks like,  and the exhibition also includes a free takeaway publication created by students from Falmouth School of Art at Falmouth University, as part of a three year partnership. The publication, A Sense of Place explores their creative journeys during lockdown, and questions what it means to have a ‘sense of place’ at a time of global crisis. 

Audiences can also go to the Loggia at the entrance of Tate St Ives for SOUND IN THE ROUND, a soundscape created by Tate Collective Producers with artist Reuben Evans. 

This exhibition is part of Making Absence Visible – a project showcasing the creative voices of local communities, whilst the gallery's usual workshops and events for children and young people have been postponed during the global pandemic.  

TheTate Collective Producers Team are the young people’s group at Tate St Ives (aged 15-25) , who meet up regularly to work alongside artists, create art, devise workshops, social events and exhibitions at the gallery as part of Tate Collective.  

The Tate St Ives and Falmouth University Partnership is in its third year. It aims to support the development of employability skills and experience of cultural industries for students across Falmouth School of Art, and to contribute to widening cultural participation in Cornwall.   

This is the first time the gallery has had an exhibition designed by the Tate Collective Producers in a main gallery at Tate St Ives. The Making Absence Visible project has also included work with local schools and aims to showcase the creative voices of our local communities, whilst usual workshop and events for children and young people have been postponed.
