Installation, simulcasted meal between the The Hague, Netherlands and Richmond, CA
Subverting the neo-liberal structure of the think tank, fourteen art workers gathered at the same time for the same meal seated across the world from each other to propose strategies to live and work as an artist.
Using the Jeffersonian Dinner format, three questions and themes were chosen from those submitted by the participants prior to the conversation.
MAKING ART vs MAKING MONEY
Is it important that your art practice makes money or is it more important to get your financial needs met other ways?
STRUCTURES OF SUPPORT
What would be an ideal set of resources & support systems look like for you as an arts worker?
LONG TERM PLANNING
What does your long-term planning as an arts worker look like? What do you prioritize? What could be done collectively?
