The New York and Sydney based artist collective keep a balance between artistic and commercial work.

The Glue Society's artistic wonders
New York City - JUN 26, 2013

The Glue Society is an excellent example of the importance of collaboration. Formed by 8 creative professionals in 1998, the group considers itself pioneer in a business model that maintains a balance between artistic and commercial activity. This allows them to focus entirely in the creation and production of creative projects.

The members of the group come from different background, including writers, designers, artists and directors. Their projects involve contemporary art that is difficult to hang on the wall. As James Dive explains, one of the members of the collective, the fact that “it is not easy to hang the artwork has a positive side. Besides, the ephemeral nature of many of these projects also gives them an attractive appearance.”

The Glue Society’s artistic creations include crazy stunts like a rainbow made out of plastic chairs in the Southern Alps, a storm inside a completely equipped house and an entire attraction park flatten into a cube.
