Let’s Collaborate

From its inception in 1967, the UC San Diego Visual Arts Department has been a hub of collaboration between media, class levels, and discipline. Nowadays, with five different undergraduate majors and strong MFA and PhD programs, UC San Diego’s Visual Arts department has fostered the collaborative effort that has made it the program it is today. In recent years, undergraduate students have created work by partnering with MFA and PhD candidates as well as with undergraduate students in vastly different fields, such as Structural Engineering and Urban Studies. Triton Art wanted to celebrate this legacy and foster interdisciplinary co-operation, an effort which led to the Let’s Collaborate event. Let’s Collaborate was a conversation exploring methods and opportunities for activating participation in the UC San Diego visual arts community across all levels: BA, MFA, and PhD. This event attempted to answer tough questions such as: “What are the ways we can engage in each other’s practices, from group shows, to events, to collectives, to projects and initiatives? What forms of collaboration can make us stronger, both individually and collectively?”
