About the event
Are you an aspiring practitioner wondering what it takes to sustain a career in the arts? In the first of our Hearthside Chats, a new series of professional development talks for emerging artists, we speak with Cultural Medallion recipient Milenko Prvački on the key factors for success in his practice, including how he secured his first exhibitions and commissions, tips on navigating the ins and outs of art industry, and his advice for young artists starting to build their body of work.
Art Outreach Chair, Mae Anderson, will join Mr Prvački in the conversation that will include advice on how best to present your portfolio and artists statements when applying to open calls and art prizes. Both Mr Prvački and Ms Anderson will draw on their rich experiences from having both served on the LTA Art Review Panel, the Public Art Trust’s Commissioning Panel, the Venice Biennale Commissioning Panel, and from their individual experiences with various art prizes and programmes.
The 60-minute moderated conversation will close with a 30-minute Q&A, with questions sourced from the audience.
Spaces are limited and registration is required for entry.
The Arts House has also kindly offered a tour of the ongoing exhibition “Our Cultural Medallion Story” at 6pm before the talk. Please indicate your interest in the RSVP page.
