How do artists find ways to support their careers? Inspired by Charles Burchfield’s experience working as a wallpaper designer while simultaneously trying to maintain and further his art career, this roundtable conversation explores the challenges and successes that contemporary artists have faced balancing their art and the jobs that support it. From fashion photography to an Alaskan cannery, artists Marilyn Minter, Matthew Brannon, and Amy Sillman will discuss the varied experiences they pursued in addition to their artistic practices. Moderated by Katy Siegel.
Please note: This program will take place at Ida K. Lang Recital Hall at Hunter College, North Building, 695 Park Avenue, 4th Floor (East 68th St. between Park and Lexington Avenues).
Online reservations have reached capacity, but we encourage you to come to Lang Hall on the night of the event for seating possibilities.
