Curators in Conversation

Duration: 45 minutes
22 July , 11-11.45 am Video Conference

In this 45-minute webinar find out more about a curator’s practice and the relationship between curator and visual artist. Kezia Geddes, Curator at Lismore Regional Gallery and Katie Dyer, Senior Curator at the Powerhouse Museum, will discuss their curatorial practice during an interview and Q+A segment. What is the most effective way for a visual artist to approach a curator? What should you include in your artist statement? What is the time-frame generally needed when scheduling and planning an exhibition? How do you gain a foothold into exhibiting at the next level, when local options may be limited? These questions and more will be discussed.
