Working with Institutions and Galleries
Sep 13, 2012
Navigating the logistics of exhibiting artwork with a gallery or museum can be daunting. How do you choose a gallery or museum that might show your work? What’s the best way to propose your project? Once you’ve found an institutional partner, how do you talk about things like money, promotion, labor and other kinds of support? Should you even bother engaging with the market or commercial art scene? At Creative Capital's Artist Retreat in July, we convened a focus session to explore this topic. This session was an open roundtable discussion facilitated by Stuart Horodner, Artistic Director at Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, with Lisa Sigal (2012 Visual Arts grantee); Meg Malloy, a director at the contemporary art gallery Sikkema Jenkins & Co; and Paul Rucker (2012 Visual Arts grantee). We recorded the conversation so that we could share it as a podcast with our larger network.
(A note about the recording: There was some ambient noise in the classroom where this conversation took place, so the quality of this podcast is not the best!)
New Media in the Marketplace
Nov 17, 2011
Over the years, we’ve found that a number of the artists we support in our Emerging Fields category have questions about how they can better market and exhibit their work. They have questions about pricing and editioning; changing formats; what it is that they are actually selling when they offer a work for sale; what their obligations to representatives and collectors are after a sale; and whether or not they should even participate in an art market that is, in their eyes, more sympathetic and better able to represent works in more conventional or established media. On November 2, 2011, Creative Capital hosted a webinar for grantees to explore some of these issues and answer specific questions from artists working in new media. The panelists were Jason Salavon (2000 Visual Arts), Karolina Sobecka (2009 Emerging Fields), Stephen Vitiello (2006 Emerging Fields) and Marina Zurkow (2001 Visual Arts). Sean Elwood, Creative Capital’s Director of Programs & Initiatives, served as the facilitator.
