About the Project Revolve:R was initiated by Sam Treadaway and Ricarda Vidal in 2011 as a multidisciplinary and international collaboration. The project explores a transmission of ideas through collaborative forms of communication, from the physical and tactile to the digital and intangible, in which contemporary artists, poets, filmmakers, and musicians, produce original artworks, poetry, films, soundscapes and music in response to a series of artworks and the collective work.
The complete works of each Revolve:R edition is published as a limited edition bookwork, most recently Revolve:R, edition three (Arrow Bookworks & Intellect Books Bristol, UK / Chicago, USA, 2018).
Each Revolve:R edition is formed of six rounds, or Revolves (forming six chapters within the bookwork publications) which each follow the same pattern whereby a two sided artwork is shared with invited artists who then respond with an artwork of their own by a specific date. The collective artworks of each Revolve are then shared with invited poets, filmmakers and musicians. Thus the initial artwork sets in motion a multitude of alternative creative responses reflecting various ways of reading, interpreting and responding.
Revolve:R is intended as a vehicle for new and responsive artistic communication and interaction. As a multidisciplinary site and source for experimentation, exchange and creative development, the project actively supports the practice of all contributors through the publication, exhibitions, and sales of the collective work. With an original focus on contemporary collaborative practice Revolve:R aims to facilitate and develop communications between artistic disciplines, and between national and international arts communities, thus initiating working relationships and friendships which can transcend linguistic and geographic boundaries both now and in the future.
Revolve:R editions now feature in public collections worldwide including: Tate Book Collection / Tate Britain, London, UK / MoMA Artist Book Collection, New York City, New York, USA / The British Library, London, UK / Glasgow School of Art, Scotland, UK / Goldsmiths, London, UK / The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, USA / California Institute of the Arts, San Francisco, California, USA / The Sutton Gallery, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK / Choisi Gallery, Lugano, Switzerland, CH / as well as others and private collections.
