| ‘sindikit |
Artists Zoë Charlton and Tim Doud developed | 'sindikit | as both a collaborative art project and an extension of their individual practices. They understand the economies of space and the politics of opportunity, which can both be used, given, manipulated, shared, bogarted, and democratized to uplift, undermine, engage, estrange, and support communities and ideas.
The pursuit of | 'sindikit | is to foster community conversations among culture activators, local, national, and international artists, and arts allies that have a stake in discussing sociopolitical and cultural issues.
The Why of the Why Not
| ‘sindikit | is a collaborative art project created to engage our research interests in gender, sexuality, race, and their many economies.
It is a platform that allows us and invited ‘sindikit artists to respond immediately to what is happening in our (collective) studios and in the world. These responses are aesthetic, culturally relevant, and often topical. The social capital of our project is collaboration and cooperation, and trust and generosity between artists.
The participating artists in The Why of the Why Not are Lena Chen, Lizzi Alarcón, Matthew Mann, Mojdeh Rezaeipour, Monsieur Zohore, Omolara Williams McCallister, Rahne Alexander, and Zia Palmer. These artists adhere to the spirit of ‘sindikit’s commitment to experimentation and research. Their work engages the complexity of identities and overlapping social concerns of each artists’ positionality. Each artist has very different motivations; however, all of their work unpacks ideas that ‘sindikit values around gender, commodity, sexuality, and race.
