This Artachat session aims to explore and critique the idea of professionalism within the art world. What is the significance of a ‘professional practice’ programme within art education? What does it mean to be a professional contemporary artist? Is there an inevitable crossover from ‘gritty’ to ‘pretty’ when setting up artist run spaces?
The session will begin with an informal presentation by Leeds based Artist Collective, Black Dogs* and then lead to a collective debate encompassing issues, ideas and concerns from all those wishing to contribute.
