The group exhibition I Put a Spell on You explores a diverse range of models that artists have adopted to create artworks collaboratively.

Contrary to how they are commonly acknowledged, the singular, solitary genius — some form of collaboration is inherent to every artwork, even if the viewer is not made aware of this creative exchange. Organised by guest curators Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, who are themselves a collaborative curatorial duo, I Put a Spell On You surveys 11 distinct models of collective practice, highlighting the complex, co-authored process of artistic production.

The exhibition includes work by Eva & Adele, Harry Shunk, and János Kender, Elmgreen & Dragset, Kahlil Joseph, Hesham Rahmanian and Rokni and Ramin Haerizadeh, GCC, Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca, Nadia Kaabi-Linke, Bianca Kennedy and Felix Krauss and Reena Spaulings.

The exhibition borrows its title from that of Jalacy “Screamin’Jay” Hawkins 1956 song, an instant hit that inspired an extensive number of future renditions including the one by Alice Smith, which is featured in Kahlil Joseph’s 2017 film Black Mary that is included in the exhibition.

The exhibition aims to stress the importance of learning from one another and to highlight the strength that lies in collaborative support.


The exhibition will be on view at SCAD Museum of Art from Oct. 1 2020 – Jan. 31 2021.
