DR. KENT'S ART PRO CLINIC
Forging an Artist’s Identity in a Pluralist Market 

Wed., May 1st, 8th, and 15th: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

As part of a new workshop series at Equity Gallery, Charlotte Kent, PhD, is offering a special three-part Imagineering and writing clinic that focuses on the creative development of imagery and narratives that help shape a distinctive artistic identity for a vast, complex and mutable art market. The series takes the artists’ statement as both the beginning and end point of artistic discourse –and utilizes its myriad literary forms and communicative potentialities. Each session will be devoted to developing singular talking points unique to one’s studio practice by situating the work within a larger historical and critical context. Presentation models will assist in the translation and codification of talking points and curated imagery into compelling stories suitable for short social media posts, extended essay captions or long-form bios, artist statements and press releases. Lastly, the clinic will explore communication channels and networking platforms with the aim of developing channel appropriate text, imagery and verbal content to further advance one’s artistic identity.

Enrollment Limited to 20; attendance at all three sessions required.  Please RSVP to info@nyartistsequity.com after purchasing your ticket. You will receive confirmation upon proof of purchase.

$25- Current Artist Equity Members Fee

NYAE Curatorial Workshop with Eric Sutphin
May

6:00 PM18:00

NYAE Curatorial Workshop with Eric Sutphin

Equity Gallery is pleased to announce that the second iteration and continuation  of Eric Sutphin's Curatorial Workshop is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, May 22nd, at 6-8 PM. In this workshop, Sutphin will discuss different strategies for crafting a successful curatorial proposal and show, and the participants will collaborate to create an upcoming exhibition for Equity Gallery. 

Session 2 of Suphin’s Curatorial Workshop is an experiment in pragmatic and democratic curatorial practice. We will view and discuss the works you are proposing. Through a process of deliberation and voting, we'll come up with a curatorial premise based on the works you have selected. The exhibition will include approximately 50% member work and 50% juried (non-member) work. 

For Session 2 of the the workshop, please bring in images of 3 artworks that you would like to propose for inclusion into our curated show. One image should be your work, the second should be an emerging artist and the third should be an established artist. Since these works will be considered for the culminating show, they should all be accessible/available to include. 

We invite both attendees from the previous workshop and new attendees to sign up for this three-part workshop!


Please RSVP to info@nyartistsequity.org if you're interested in coming.
