Based in Washington, D.C. and Western North Carolina, Workingman Collective is a collaborative group of artists and range of professionals who move in and out of various projects. An interest in exploring the nature of collaboration and cooperation, invention, chance, and the public guides their practice. Projects move through stages from the collection of information to the construction of an object or situation to the participation of an audience. Typically participation alters the process, producing new information that is integrated into the art experience. Ultimately, their projects seek to generate environmental awareness, stimulate the re-identification of a population with its hometown history, and urge participants into strengthening relationships with their neighbors.
Since its founding in 2005, Workingman Collective has exhibited work and created projects in the U.S., Europe, Africa, and the Caribbean. They are represented by Hemphill Fine Arts, Washington DC.
From a Washington Post review by Mark Jenkins:
Founding members are Tom Ashcraft, Peter Winant, Janis Goodman.
