The Invisibility Collective is a collaborative group of nationally acclaimed artists, curators, and social activists exploring the deep experiences and complexity of the concept of Invisibility.
To date, members of the collective are located in the USA, with concentrations in the SF Bay Area and Pennsylvania. The Invisibility Collective collaborators are: Susan R. Kirshenbaum (founder), Lonnie Graham, Mary Graham, Rhiannon Evans MacFadyen, Samira Shaheen, and Christopher M. Tandy.
The Invisibility Project was founded by San Francisco-based artist Susan R. Kirshenbaum—initially conceived as a curatorial project in late 2019 exploring the invisibility and aging. During “sheltering in place” in the midst of the first months of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, Kirshenbaum decided to expand upon her project to honor the multi-faceted breadth of the concept of “invisibility” and invited a handful of nationally-acclaimed artists, curators, and social activists with a variety of backgrounds to form a collaborative group known as The Invisible Collective.
The Invisibility Project makes use of this site, multi-media art exhibitions and installations, a series of conversations, and workshops to explore the many facets of invisibility and to reflect a shift towards consent in in/visibility.
