Navigating the art world and getting your work shown - Norwich
Wednesday, 1 March 2017 from 10:00 to 16:00 (GMT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Through a mixture of presentation and exercises, this one-day seminar de-mystifies the art world and provides concrete ideas for how you might enable your work to get under the radar of people most pertinent to your practice.
For recent graduates, through to more established artists looking to refresh their knowledge, it looks at:
- the ecology of the art world from the artist-led space to international art fairs via public institutions and commercial spaces
- the roles of curator, gallerist and commissioner as well as other key players in the art world
- the strategies and tools you can use to promote your practice and approach galleries and curators
- establishing and making best use of your networks
- identifying local and national exhibiting opportunities
- the background to setting up your own exhibitions
How to get your work shown is led by Lucy Day, curator at Day + Gluckman. Projects include a 7-year curated programme with the law firm Collyer Bristow and self initiated, curated contemporary visual arts projects with heritage organisations including the National Trust and the Canal and River Trust. Day + Gluckman recently received a Grants for the Arts award towards the research for their A Woman’s Place project. Day is a Fellow of the RSA, a commissioned writer on visual arts practice and exhibitions and an advisor and consultant on artists’ professional development for a variety of arts organisations including a-n The Artists Information Company and Artquest and a Visiting Practitioner for University of the Arts (Wimbledon College of Art).
“I enjoyed the ….workshop with Lucy Day. It was a masterpiece of clarity, visually exciting, funny and enjoyable. I admired both her visual and conceptual skill as a curator and her ability to teach”. Feedback from a previous How to get your work shown seminar with Lucy Day
