Eclectic Collective

by Paul Smart November 23, 2018

Ever so quietly, a fairly new Woodstock gallery — Collective — has been gaining audience and buzz around town through enterprising exhibitions and events, and a keen sense of purpose that fits the shifting ethos of our times like a glove.


On the morning after an experimental film screening and arts happening this past Saturday, and the eve of a pop up show featuring a new photo series from Marainna Rothen set for this coming Saturday, November 24, Collective founder and curator Jicky Schnee talked about what got her started as a gallerist, and keeps what she’s created singular, yet also hyper-relevant.


Collective’s shows over the past year have included curated groupings entitled “Into the Woods,” Red Thread: Good Grief,” The Fusion of Identity and Idolatry,” Shaking the Dreamland Tree,” and “Seen and Unseen.” For each, Schnee writes a conjoining statement that’s far from artspeak, and designed to engage and spark. 

…Seen and Unseen is an examination from all angles, political, global, personal, conceptual, and theoretical, of that which is perceived and that which is unobserved or even invisible.”


Names of artists who’ve shown at Collective’s innovatively hung and truly contemporary exhibits are both new and treasured. Among them: Melissa Dadourian, Sigal Ben-David, Les St. Leon, Eddy Martelly, Anne Mailey, Terry Jones, Nin Brudermann, Janine Iversen,  Robert Ohnigian, Joe Mama-Nitzberg, Alice Schavoir, Jessie Kolter, Raina Hamner, Luis Robayo, Emily Roberts-Negron,  Chris Victor, Alex Hoerner, Erik Brunetti, Fionn Reilly, Nadja Petrov, Will Lytle, and Schnee herself.

Memories │ 5th October - 1st November 2018

The exhibition season at the Space Millepiani in Rome starts again with Memories, open to public from the 5th of October to the 1st of November 2018. Memory - as already suggested by the title - is the main theme of this collective exhibition showing photographic and digital artworks made by a group of artists coming from all over the world.



Public and private, personal and collective are the two conflicting protagonists of the exhibition. Those who worked on the first aspect were able to create pictures centred on roots, families, grief (for a loss) or hope (for the future). The result is a personal diary built on images potentially causing a visual ‘madeleine effect’: hit by those visual fragments, the public is immediately involved in other people’s story, in other people’s life.



It is not important whether they represent details, portraits or still lifes: either poetic compositions, old family pictures as well as unfamiliar scenes can suddenly become our stories too.
All in all, Memories can be considered as an exhibition on our world, as captured by the artist’s eye and then graphically reinterpreted, consciously corrupted, otherwise reproduced.
