As a part of BRIGHT LIGHTS, SMALL CITY, Buratti Fine Art will be hosting two Saturday afternoon artist talks.
The first will be an informal panel discussion about the artist-run culture in Perth, taking place at 12pm on the 21st September.
Panel Discussion: What's the deal with ARIs?
Loads of artist-run initiatives have popped up in Perth in the last year or so. What exactly are they and what do they bring to the local arts industry? What is it like to work with/for one? Advice for young artists just starting out. The pros and cons of ARIs vs traditional art galleries. How do you get involved or find representation as an artist? What does it means to be an emerging artist in WA and what part do galleries or studios play within this as a whole?
We will be encouraging participation from the audience, and will accept questions and thoughts from anyone attending the talk. The panel itself will feature local creatives and ARI directors - including several BRIGHT LIGHTS, SMALL CITY exhibiting artists.
