My role: Curator in collaboration with Pamela Grombacher
Artists: Fiona Reilly (EI), Kelly Lloyd (US), Lise Skou (DK)
The Art Workers Events Series consisted of 4 events from March 25-28 at the exhibition space Rum46 in Aarhus.
The Art Workers Event Series - Badge launch
The Event Series kicks off with the launch of the Art Workers badge, a new project by Irish artist Fiona Reilly.
Many artists have to supplement the income they earn through their art with paid employment outside their field. The Art Workers Badge is designed to be worn by artists at their so-called "money jobs."
The Art Workers Event Series - JBA TV Special
The Just Business Agency will interrupt normal programming to present It's Just Television, a television special featuring By Way of Today, CaylaMae, CaW Research Group, Stephanie Graham, Leslie Lawrence, Jesse Malmed, The MorphoTransverse Method, Nice Talk, Postmodern Talking and Lea Devon Sorrentino.
The Art Workers Event Series - AaBKC Social with Kelly Lloyd
Kelly Lloyd will lead a discussion over breakfast about the research she engaged in during her recent tenure as AaBKC Residency's Fall 2018 artist-in-residence, which examined contemporary artists' livelihoods in Aarhus.
The Art Workers Event Series - Århus Feminist Reading Group
The final event in The Art Workers Event Series will consider what it means to be an "art worker" through the lens of Julia Bryan-Wilson's text, "Occupational Realism." The discussion will be framed by a talk by Fiona Reilly and moderated by Århus Feminist Reading Group.
Supported by rum46 and Aarhus Visual Art Center.
