Business or pleasure: the commerce of creativity in the Australian arts scene Insight by The Office Space returns this month in collaboration with VIVID Ideas to bring you inspired and intriguing conversations on the Business of Art. Join multi prize-winning painter Del Kathryn Barton and rising art star, ceramic sculptor and installation artist Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran, as they thrash out what constitutes ‘success’ in today’s art world. Together with Barry Keldoulis, currently the trailblazing CEO and Director of Sydney Contemporary, Australasia’s international art fair, all three will deliver sharp debate peppered with lashings of introspection on the Australian art scene and how they view the worth and credibility of their own practice and initiatives within it. Topics explored: · What constitutes ‘success’ in the art world · The rise in popularity of art fairs and their role in promoting local work · The influences of biennales (both in Sydney and abroad) · Australia’s appetite for collecting art Organised by The Office Space, Sydney’s boutique share office provider, this event forms part of their popular monthly Insight talk series.
