Drawing on the talents and expertise of various professionals, The Art Room wants to positively contribute to the development of emerging artists by offering this series of workshops. Our next session is:
A TRUTH ABOUT BEING AN ARTIST
Join us for our next workshop where you will learn about some of the activities Hannah Bertram uses in her practice to be playful, curious, uninhibited and uncertain. Hannah will also be discussing her 24 Hour Endurance workshop which we’re excited to be hosting on October 20th!
‘I make things and I do things. Most of the things I make, fail. Most of things I do, don’t look like art. But they matter. To the world my practice might look strong and clear, successful even. Maybe it is. But you don’t need to hear that, and i don’t often care for talking about it, rather there are murky, quirky, messy and absurd ways that I behave in the world that is a truth about being an artist. I want to show you some of the specific habits, methods and tools that occupy my time. They are the fringe dwelling activities that allow me to be playful, curious, uninhibited and uncertain. They have been useful to me. They may be useful to you.’ Hannah Bertram
