Things Are Expanding @ Swarm Gallery

John Casey & Derek Wesiberg

Crazy fun show of collaborations at Swarm Gallery. I finally got to debut the sculpture Derek Weisberg and I made together. I’m very pleased with how it came out. There’s a nice interview on the Swarm Blog where Derek and I interview each other about our collaborative process.

The process: Swarm invited fourteen of its gallery artists to invite another artist of their choosing (from outside the gallery) to collaborate on a piece. We encouraged the artists to invite someone whose work they admire, but who works differently – either in medium, creative style, concept, or all of the above – to “stretch their creative muscles”.
