Overview

The art world is a complex and opaque field, requiring the knowledge of key structures, players and processes to navigate successfully. This course provides the basic tools to assist artists in building and managing their careers. The course offers an overview of some of the key changes affecting the contemporary art world, from the rise of the art fair to the significance of new and interactive media. Students actively work on building and presenting a portfolio, writing a successful artist statement, speaking about their work extemporaneously, navigating social media, and applying for residencies. Each participant develops a dynamic, long-term plan best suited to their work and artistic vision.
