Wednesday 1 June
Please join us to hear from four emerging arts practitioners working at Artspace, a leading contemporary arts organisation that supports and commissions Australian and international artists of all generations. Artspace is currently based on campus at NAS while the Artspace building in Woolloomooloo is being redeveloped. Hear Johanna Bear (Associate Curator), Elyse Goldfinch (Associate Curator) and Yuanyu Li (Curatorial Assistant) talk about how they found their feet in the arts and the key projects and roles they’ve undertaken across curating, writing and advocacy. They will share their experiences mounting exhibitions in artist-run, commercial and institutional spaces and how they work closely with artists to support experimental practices at organisations including Firstdraft, Runway Journal and Artspace itself. This week’s Art Forum will be a candid conversation around opportunities for emerging arts workers and offer an insight into arts ecologies in Australia and beyond from four different perspectives.
