Unique Collaborations Unveiled at Co-Prosperity Sphere

{ Posted by K. Beste on 14.11.2012 }

The Co-Prosperity Sphere (C-PS), an experimental cultural center located in Bridgeport, will be featuring unusual collaborations in its new exhibition Triangulation, opening this weekend. The exhibition is a not-so-literal take on the geometric concept, in which ten current members of the Co-Prosperity School locate themselves by “measuring the angles” between themselves and two other people: one a past participant in Co-Pro School, and the other, a person from the current participant’s past, residing outside of Chicago. InterArts MFA Valentina Vella is using video and handmade paper to explore the intersections between her work and that of her collaborators, Karin Zuppiger and Hui-min Tsen. For Vella, the project provides an ideal arena for her to explore her ideas on successful human intersections, interpersonal ligatures, and inevitable missed connections. Triangulation will present ten triptychs, groupings, installations, or collaborations, which may focus on connections discovered in existing works, or may take the form of new, specific work that springs from the collaborations.

Triangulation opens at Co-Prosperity Sphere on Friday, November 16, from 7:00–10:00 p.m. For more information on Co-Prosperity Sphere, click here.
