"NO is a social collective that bases its works around investigating micro-cultures and introducing humorous artwork to a mass of seemingly un-interested viewers; by using familiarity and stereotypes, and often games, ‘NO’ is keen to widen the understanding of contemporary art mediums and open the mind to subjects that are close to home" - mission statement 2012
The NO Collective are an artist collaborative specialising in producing, and creatively teaching, contemporary art; based in London they work on a national, international and local scale- working with small groups of people within a varied wider context. Founded in 2010, NO is ran by it's founders Natalie and Joe who endeavour to make contemporary performance and participatorary artworks accessible to a diverse range of social and cultural groups. NO uses humorous themes and contexts to bridge the elitist gap that often appears between artist and audience. The work produced is often satirical, with a social and subtle political context.
The pair use a professional stance of art-working to initiate and to facilitate interesting, fun and original workshops and educational programmes. This creates a 'jumping into the deep end' approach to learning and self-development. The authorship of NO artwork is distributed by all those who are involved in it's production, therefore giving participants a sense of pride and achievement at the end of a project. NO works with a complete span of age-groups with previous project participants including 5 to 85 year olds.
The NO Collective is ever-changing and is constantly looking for new engagement, involvement and projects.
