As artists, we know how to make the work, but talking about it in a meaningful way can be really difficult. We know the work has value, but how do you articulate that? When someone asks the question, how do you respond?
Laundromat Art Space and Warehouse 4726 host a conversational workshop for artists to practice talking about the work. Join us for an informal afternoon that strives to help fellow artists craft a narrative about our careers and develop a comfort level when speaking about our work - to curators, gallerists, collectors, and the media.
Finally, we’ll discuss ways to broaden our careers in the arts. This is a "practice makes perfect" kind of thing; the more you practice, the better you'll be!
Saturday, September 21 from 2pm to 3:30pm
HOSTED AT LAUNDROMAT ART SPACE
5900 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33137
Facilitating artists: Jean Blackwell Font, Ignacio Font, Donna Ruff, Ron Sanchez
RSVP REQUIRED TO ATTEND.
