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. Currently, Fluent~Collaborative has two projects: 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 though 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 and wall and spaces of an intimate space.
testsite is open by appointment.
...might be good is an Austin-based an online contemporary arts publication that reaches over 8,200 international readers each month.
