Collective is committed to supporting new visual art through a programme of exhibitions, projects and commissions. Originally established as an artist run organisation in 1984, Collective is an international organisation for the production, research, presentation and distribution of contemporary art and culture with a specific focus on new visual art and practices. We aim to foster, support and debate new work and practices in a way which is of mutual benefit to artists and audiences. We believe that visual art can provide experiences that change the way we look at our world and understand ourselves within it. Collective is a space where people can come to witness, to be challenged, to learn, to experience; a space where adventure is celebrated.

Vito Acconci was born in the Bronx, New York in 1940. Acconci received a BA in literature from Holy Cross College and an MFA in literature and poetry from the University of Iowa. Acconci's early interest in the space on a page - a structure within which the reader and writer can move through, informed his early video works. He started to perform what he would otherwise have written and developed over 200 conceptually structured and radical body-related pieces. Acconci's interest in the human body and its relationship to public space developed further into architecture, landscape architecture and furniture design. At the end of the 80's he set up 'acconci studio', a group of architects based in Brooklyn, New York, who design projects for public spaces- streets and plazas, gardens and parks, building lobbies and transportation centres. Acconci talks about his career, beginning with his early poems and video works to his present day architectural proposals.

Fiona Jardine has a BA in Fine Art from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, and an MFA from Glasgow School of Art. Currently, Jardine is pursuing a PhD programme of research at the University of Wolverhampton. Fiona presents The Transfiguration of the Commonplace. Taking Muriel Spark's novel "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" as a starting point, Jardine makes links to Arthur Danto's analytical philosophy of art and Jacques Ranciere's pedagogical considerations in "The Ignorant Schoolmaster" and "The Emancipated Spectator" in order to establish a notion of the artwork's rhetorical function in framing experience.
