5/5 Collective & Residency

Published on 2018-09-14

The Collective
5/5 (fivefifths) is a collective born from a desire to recognize, support, and make visible the diversity of Black experiences, and to encourage dialogue(s) amongst artists which otherwise feels absent from institutional art spaces. 5/5 was co-founded by Tania Balan-Gaubert, Troy Chew and Nkiruka Oparah during their MFA at California College of the Arts. 5/5 is dedicated to exploring Black(ness) as an idea, consciousness, reference, and embodied experience through language, conversation and visual culture.

Current Practice
5/5 aims to disrupt the idea of a formal gallery space by curating exhibitions according to five pillars known only to its founding members. Each project is curated based on the space, ritual, intuition, and current research.
