Mentoring Artists for Women's Art: Artist Boot Camp: Contextualizing Your Artwork, November 22

Thursday, November 22, 2018


MAWA, 611 Main Street

Instructor: hannah_g

$10 for members of MAWA or Creative Manitoba; $20 for non-members. No need to register, just come.

Didactics, brochures, self-published catalogues, artist talks, documentation, etc. How can providing context enhance the experience of the artwork? How much should an artist tell her audience? This workshop will give an overview of different ways to provide your audience with "a way in" to your work and deepen the experience of it, including everything from institutional standards for labelling, to experimental tours, to the blurb that appears on the back of an exhibition flyer.

Co-Presented by MAWA & Creative Manitoba
