  On collaboration  
 “As an artist, collaboration is key for me. One of my oldest friends, Madelyne Beckles, is also my closest artistic collaborator. Since high school, we really clicked, personally and creatively. She brings her experience to my work, and I bring my experience to hers. We are also very different, but I believe it’s also important to work with people who aren’t like you. For me, not only has she always understood my work, but she can also give me criticism.” - Petra Collins 
 In honor of International Women’s Day this week, we are posting quotes from our latest  Creative New York interview  with  Petra Collins , highlighting important issues relating to body image, openness and collaboration, and health care access as an artist. Read the interview at  nyc.moma.org  in anticipation of  PopRally ’s upcoming event,  Petra Collins: In Search of Us , on 3/18. Tickets and info at  mo.ma/poprallyxpetra
