What is an artist-curator? What makes a good collaborative partnership between a curator and an artist? What financial, practical and critical support is available? Do you work with an organisation or go it alone?
These are some of the questions that artists, curators, organisers and funders have pondered in a rich mix of articles, tours, profiles and interviews. They reveal what makes them tick, what inspires them and what it means to be involved in curatorial practice today.
No matter how pure the creative process in the studio, selling work is essential to the sustainability of many artists.
Whilst commercial galleries play a major role in moving work from studios into homes and collections, public galleries and other curatorial organisations provide opportunities for artists to test propositions and new contexts.
Although commercial considerations drive the art market, the practice-driven activities of artists operating individually or collaboratively not only provide the artists themselves with profile and development but also offer insights for art world professionals into new directions in contemporary visual arts practice.
