The xs collective is an association of highly experimental installation and live performance artists who contribute collectively-themed and collaborative work towards installations using an experimental lab approach around their interpretation of human excess. The collective shares curatorial oversight. Work is entirely each artist’s or collaboration of artists’ contribution towards a collective notion of human excess. Collective artists join each exhibition on an individual readiness and availability basis. Decisions are made collectively at regular meetings. Artists are listed in reverse alphabet by surname.
Organisational or curatorial oversight is shared between members, either on a collective basis or between one or more volunteer or group-invited members on a loosely rotational basis.
The xs collective aims to take advantage of the ‘many heads are better than one’ adage and to fully utilise the increased flow of ideas that comes naturally from collective processes and practices.
