Fluent~Collaborative is a speculative non-profit initiative established to increase awareness of developments in contemporary visual art and the ideas and issues that inform culture today. Fluent~Collaborative produces testsite, an experimental exhibition space, and …might be good, an online contemporary arts publication.
testsite, a project of Fluent-Collaborative, situates itself between an exhibition space, an open studio, a temporary residency program and a private home. Participants, usually a writer and a visual artist drawn from far afield or close to home, are invited to create parallel experimental projects through a shared conversation. testsite presents these projects as they are germinating, or at a stage of fruitful exploration and healthy doubt, integrated within the corners, shelves, walls and rooms of an intimate space.
…might be good is currently on sabbatical. …might be good has functioned as an Austin-based online contemporary arts publication reaching over 8,200 international readers a month. Understanding Austin as one micro-center within a larger network of art communities worldwide, …might be good has provided a platform for thoughtful dialogue about artistic production and ideas, generating reviews, interviews and other features in response to noteworthy happenings near and far. Previous copies can be accessed in the archives.
