|Recently the art world has seen an explosion of art fairs – so many so that some say this is a crisis in the art world, inverting the traditional gallery system and compromising the carefully balanced relationships of artists, gallerists and collectors. However, this eruption of activity in this type of temporary art event across the globe presents thrilling possibilities. Throw the power of the internet and social media into the ring, and the arena for artists to make their way in the contemporary art world is filled with opportunities.
This talk will discuss how to prepare for and create these opportunities via the art fair system: to include preparing for an exhibition showcase; managing corporate commissions; branding, and networking.
This is a talk for any visual artists wishing to forge an independent career within the creative world.
Speaker: Led by Sophie Lucas, Fair Director at The Other Art Fair.
