UNFOLLOW COLLECTIVE is a multifunctional collaborative platform created by artists dedicated to promote diverse forms of art while providing a forum for contemporary dialogue. Our objective is to grant artists a place to freely showcase their work without any restraint.

Last Saturday’s opening for Unfollow Collective’s group show What We Do is Secret was inspiring. Not only was there some great work on the walls – the energy was electric.
Located in a pop-up space in the Old Bowery Station, the show featured nine artists who have come together organically through their desire to create and share ideas with each other and a greater audience. These are artists who don’t fit perfectly into the traditional art world; they are individuals who make art “behind closed doors,” after hours and without commercial motivations. Hailing from different parts of the globe and working in a variety of media, the artists in Unfollow Collective embody a particularly modern form of creative collaboration – one that was born online and has migrated from apartment shows and house parties to pop-up galleries and who knows where else. Having started in fall 2015, the collective’s growth is impressive. Its popularity is certainly due to the unfailing enthusiasm of its artists and their willingness to be open and vulnerable with one another and the audiences they engage.
