COMRADE TRUEBRIDGE
Presented by Some Serious Business
Directed by multidisciplinary artists Quintan Ana Wikswo, Cat Tyc, and
Matthew Contos

COMRADE TRUEBRIDGE is an artist-driven, rhizomatic workgroup, braintrust, salon, kitchen table, laboratory, and hive mind where artists share and exchange needs and resources – offering an opportunity to engage deeply with their own and others’ work and needs during various phases of development. The mission of the group is intended to collaboratively find intersections and assistance between diverse, multidisciplinary, and difficult-to-define artists.

At our gatherings, artists come together to (a) share works in progress, (b) discuss their project’s preoccupying puzzles, experiments, failures, mysteries, messiness, challenges, and vision, and (c) collaboratively identify strategies, insights, resources, and possible avenues for exploration and invention. The gatherings yield a wealth of collective knowledge and expertise as expressed by eagerness to both give and receive assistance from our colleagues and peers. Rather than a place to present polished, formal, completed works with pressures of perfection or prestige, Comrade Truebridge is an incubator and sanctuary for artists to step outside the realm of marketplace and to share the more intimate aspects of art making, both absurd and sublime.

ABOUT COMRADE TRUEBRIDGE:

Comrade Truebridge was founded in 2013 by multidisciplinary artists Quintan Ana Wikswo and Cat Tyc, and directed by Wikswo. With the partnership of Creative Capital, NYFA, LMCC, and other organizations, artists came from an eclectic range of disciplines and communities, with a special focus on those whose practices venture beyond the traditional boundaries of form and discipline. The first participants were NYC-based interdisciplinary alumni of Creative Capital, NYFA, LMCC, Yaddo, MacDowell, and Millay Colony. Since that initial gathering, Comrade Truebridge has expanded in a rhizomatic manner, as comrades bring other comrades. Read more: someseriousbusiness.org
