with: presents the outcomes of three collaborations between artists that arose from discussions during a series of crit sessions, held at Rogue Project Space, in 2011-2012. During the sessions one or more of the artists presented an aspect of their practice to the group and conversation developed. The name of the crit sessions ‘Community of Practice’, refers to the book by Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger (1991) that describes how a group of individuals with common interests can develop professionally by sharing experiences through storytelling and regular interaction.
