A week after the spectacular launch, this Tuesday saw the beginning of DEBUT Contemporary’s professional knowledge fuelled workshops.
Forming yet another queue outside the gallery, the DEBUT Artists were keen to arrive early for the first session with Sara Raza, a former Tate Modern curator, critic and an editor for ArtAsiaPacific Magazine.
Raza kick started the session “CURATORS WANT TO BE ARTISTS AND ARTISTS WANT TO BE CURATORS” with a well informed insight to groundbreaking events such as Manifesta, dOCUMENTA, Frieze and No Soul for Sale. From this, points were risen in response to the successful advantages of utilising the masses of global art fairs and biennials now available for emerging artists to maximize and pursue.
In conversation with gallery Director Samir Ceric, key professional strategy points were further presented and the artists were prompted to hone in on the progressive aims and ambitions of their artistic careers.
With immediately strong and positive feedback, DEBUT Contemporary will continue to present fresh and valuable industry knowledge, with next weeks session ‘PRIVATE COLLECTORS’ MIND’ by art collector Jean Philippe Vernes.
