A Mug’s Game – Vocation or Compulsion?
Location: Contemporary Art Tasmania
Shotgun 6 – Public Program
The first in a series of events for the new Shotgun 6 program.
DATE: Friday 9 December 2016
Shotgun is about feeding the intense emotional and intellectual commitment to making artwork. This not-so-simple activity is often diluted by paying homage to the Art World; from attending social events to support colleagues and peers, to the inexorable rounds of grant writing and the often ‘curly’ logistics of delivering an exhibition. A Mug’s Game – Vocation or Compulsion? will side-step the ubiquitous professional development forums and instead focus on those harder to quantify but perhaps more important aspects of what sustains artistic practice today.
Join Shotgun 6 artists Nadege Philippe-Janon and Rob O’Connor, Shotgun 6 mentor Helen Hughes, the fantastic Pat Brassington and project coordinators Craig Judd, Jarrod Rawlins and Kylie Johnson in an informal round-table style conversation. We will talk about the rites of passage, rituals, relationships and those significant ‘moments’ that drive practice.
Shotgun is a partnership project between Detached, MONA and CAT.
