In an age of rapid advances in technology, the art world is being dramatically disrupted as never before. The Gage Academy of Art teams up with Town Hall to bring Seattle artists Brandon Vosika, Mary Anne Carter, and Leah St. Lawrence to the stage to share their experiences in an art scene facing unprecedented new opportunities and challenges. They outline how fairs, DIY spaces, and social media outlets such as Instagram are gaining popularity as alternatives to the traditional gallery system. Listen in for an optimistic exploration of a rapidly transforming contemporary art world, and the burgeoning new possibilities and resources for young artists today.
Programming Note: Unfortunately, series organizer Gary Faigin is unable to join the event. Instead, John Boylan, host of a long-running conversation series on art and culture in Seattle will join as moderator.
