Creative Collaborations with Justin Hibbs Part 1; Working with Commercial and Public galleries.
In this session Justin Hibbs will give an overview of how to develop and sustain a practice through a range of different collaborations and exhibition contexts. From working with other Artists to alternative exhibition spaces, such as; artist led and project spaces, curating your own projects, working with commercial galleries through to public institutions & museums. Justin will give examples of how these different collaborative relationships and exhibitions can be used as developmental opportunities to evolve your practice. This session will also reveal some of the everyday realities of working within different gallery contexts and debunk some of the myths associated with exhibiting your work.
