Working with Contemporary Artists:

A Workshop with Ferran Barenblit

Working with Contemporary Artists
“Art is what makes life more interesting than art,” said French artist Robert Filliou. He was right: working with contemporary artists is one of the most enriching activities that a professional or an organization can undertake. Whether in a museum, other cultural institution, or any public or private position, working with artists will unleash interpretations and emotions. In a globally interconnected, culturally diverse, and increasingly complex world, contemporary artists give voice to the varied and changing cultural landscape of identities, values, and beliefs. Their work is always at the crossroad of theory, subjects, concepts, methods, and materials. The increasing role of audiences can generate unexpected results that can benefit both individuals and communities.
In this workshop, we will study the conceptual, practical, ethical, legal, and financial elements to consider when working with contemporary artists. We will also examine many successful (and a few unfortunate) examples that will help us to understand how art, according to Yoko Ono, makes us “walk a half an inch above ground."
