New Event | Working With Curators – Tuesday 22 March

It is extremely beneficial for artists to have their work seen by curators. Outside of the potential for exhibitions, there is also the valuable opportunity to engage in a critical discussion of their practice. However, we do appreciate this can be a rather daunting process. What should you know and/or research in advance contacting a curator?

We introduce you to a panel of 3 curators who, in discussion, will help demystify the process. You will be able to take a closer look into the role and thinking of curators; seeing how they may engage with your work and offer some thoughts on how you might better equip yourself to connect with them.

The event is free for South County Dublin based Visual Artists.

The Panel is moderated by Catherine Hemelryk.
