The second talk in this year’s Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize will look at how to organise an exhibition; from the planning, curation and marketing to logistics and working with external organisations and venues. We have two invited experts to share their knowledge at this free talk. Firstly, curator and collector Tim Sayer who joins us as a guest judge for the art prize this year, has collected art for over 50 years, bequest his collection to the Hepworth Wakefield and consequently curated an exhibition including works from both his and their collections in 2016. Our second expert, Ginevra Fiorentini, is the Founder and Director of Presenza an organisation that, through its programme of exhibitions, aims to bring contemporary, emerging artists into public and commercial spaces to engage with wider audiences and make contemporary art as accessible as possible. Between our two experts we'll share tips and discuss the challenges of organising your own exhibition.
The evening will run 6PM - 9PM. Please RSVP via the link provided.
