Our best professional practices podcasts series focuses on the business end of being an artist.
• Social: How Does Socially Engaged Art Happen in Los Angeles speaks to what is needed in L.A. for artists to be effective working in communities and non-traditional spaces.
• Shop Talk talks about project management and best practices of sustaining a career.
• What Do Curators Want focuses on the curator and gallery’s perspective on how to develop and sustain professional relationships.
SOCIAL: HOW DOES SOCIALLY ENGAGED ART HAPPEN IN LOS ANGELES
Was a Roundtable Workshop hosted by LACE. It explored the possibilities and limits of current organizational models and curatorial strategies that support Social Engagement Art practices. From trust building and community process to funding and timing, this session invites participants to grapple with fundamental questions: How to sustain a project? How to represent in the community? How long will the work really take?
These Conversations were a part of a larger project instigated by Anne Bray as part of Freewaves.org
Features frank conversations with your favorite contemporary artists. Hosted by artist Bari Ziperstein, you can think of Shop Talk like that “Inside the Actor’s Studio” show on Bravo, except for visual artists. What are some misconceptions about being a contemporary LA artist? How do you juggle deadlines, personal life, and your day job? Has your life suffered because of art? These are tough questions, and Bari gets some very honest answers from some of LA’s most celebrated and respected artists.
Much thanks to the Tremaine Foundation and The Pasadena Art Alliance for their support of this series. Special thanks to Jonathan Stoffenmacher.
