There was a virtual visit to Phoenix studios and had a chance to have a talk with some of the artists who are currently working in there, including two graduate students of University of Brighton who had a studio space for one year. The artsist who stood up for me the most was David Blandy since my practice focuses on performance art and video at the moment.
Here are some relevant professional practice points from the visit:
- It’s helpful to meet people in private views to built up networking
- After graduating from university, is good to keep doing your art practice and documenting it
- In order to get noticed, an artist needs to be able to organize and curate their own shows
