Artist Salon Webinar: Curators’ Panel

  • Artist Salon
  • RAG@Home
  • September 29, 2020

    The Artist Salon Series features art professionals leading inspirational artist talks and professional development for visual artists.

    This month’s session features a panel discussion about the behind-the-scenes process that goes into curating at a public art gallery, artist run centre or commercial art gallery, and what the future may hold for these spaces in the coming years.

    Guest panelists Wil Aballe of Wil Aballe Art Projects (WAAP), Shaun Dacey of Richmond Art Gallery, and Henry Heng Lu of Centre A, Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Asian Art will share their perspectives and provide valuable information to artists of all levels – from students who desire a career in the arts to working-artists who would like a glimpse at the inner-workings of the curatorial process.

    Join in the live online session for discussion and Q+A opportunities. Registration required.
