The Art of Survival speaker series, a collaboration between articule, Art Matters, the Fine Arts Reading Room and Coatcheck, brings together people from different backgrounds and stages in their careers who are negotiating artistic careers in alternative ways.
The speakers examine ways to facilitate and promote artistic production in Montreal, abroad, on a budget, on the internet, in your home, in the middle of the desert, and beyond.
The panel brings to attention the possibility of a career in the arts operating between and on the outskirts of conventional art world models, and traditional notions of time, space, place and person. These perpectives defy the prescriptive myth of the “art star” and offer realistic, inspiring information to art students and emerging artists.
