Working with Curators – Brendan Fox (NI)

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.

The webinar will give you an insight into how curators may engage with your work and interpret it differently to your expectations. You will gain an understanding into the role of a  curator and their processes, to better equip you to identify curators you would like to work with and how you might approach them.

Recorded on 17 February 2021.

This webinar was held in partnership with Creative Ireland and Wexford County Council Arts Office.
