Art Review & Art Articles
Apart from the art talks by artists, another great way how to expand your network is to write art reviews & articles about art. At the beginning of 2020 I replied to an open call published by an online Blue Bee Magazine.
The magazine doest not only bring views from different people in the art industry about their experiences in the art world but also it gives a space for raising artists across the media who have different artistic approach and expressions.
The magazine published my interview with Berlin based artist Fabrizio Poltronieri. In this interview Fabrizio talked his experience of being represented by a gallery. Plus Fabrizio shared a very interesting insight into a life of emerging artists.
Let me just mention the one insight the we have in common. Many raising artists do not realize that after finishing their college, they have to invest another large sum of money into building a solid portfolio.
It is very unlikely that the artist right after the college would end up in a gallery which would pay for his or her shows.
The second interview was with Anna Franek who runs Gallery Anna25 in Berlin. Anna has opened the gallery 7 years ago and she is also focused on artists who strive away from the main stream market.
From Anna´s point of view function of an art gallery is to represent and support artists and be a part of the shifts in the art market. In the interview Anna talks about her base of collectors.
An important part of a job as an art curator is to write articles or reviews about shows they have visited, artists they have met or artworks they have encountered. It is an excellent opportunity to gain an insight in how the curator thinks.
Here is a list of the art reviews and articles I wrote:
