GAP Is a membership based international collaborative of Mixed-media Artists whose active participants number 53 members working in 12 countries, depending on the project. Having roots initially in web based activity beginning in 2012 (post card and correspondence art projects such as KNEE(jerk) Fragmentation Project).
GLOBAL ART PROJECT has generated numerous workshops, exhibitions and collaborative studio experiences in Venice, Lecce and Treviso Italy, Mazatlan, Mexico, Dakar, Senegal, Ghent, Belgium, The Netherlands, North Carolina, New York, Minneapolis, MN, San Francisco, Mill Valley, Benicia, Sausalito and Novato, California. Our work reflects individual, personal and global concerns by virtue of intention. We are creating and exhibiting work that allows freedom of expression given this unique format to communicate beyond language and culture with diverse artists from all over the world while remaining open to the opportunities of the moment accessed through this circumstance in settings allowing interaction not only with each other but local arts communities as well.
We are linked by activity in mixed-media art practice, photography, video and performance arts which may be reduced to working with the materials at hand and has antecedents in collage, assemblage, found-object and related practice. Our affinity with Fluxus, Cobra, and the Dada Art Movement is a recognition of the importance of being attuned to the collaborative future.

an exhibition of works from GLOBAL ART FRAG PROJECT created via the exchange of collage, and assemblage materials, starts, suggestions, discards and ephemera between members of GAP, an international collaborative cooperative of more than 60 members working in 17 countries. The exhibition includes results of the Frag Exchange Project as well as works created collaboratively in GAP residencies, (Italy, Mexico, Senegal) during collaborative studio sessions in Belgium and California as well as examples from the GAP artists’ book series DISLOCATIONS all originating from frags (fragments) and developed into original works by the recipient in several of the myriad ways in which collaboration processes can be manifest allowing investigation into new ways to create; eliminating preciousness and attachment that connects artists in ways that might otherwise not exist.
