Event description

Description

'Radicalising the artist biography' is a workshop on how, as artists, we can re-write and re-imagine ourselves according to our own systems of value.

Ever struggled to put together a ‘brief artist bio’, or wondered why these texts are so formulaic and uninspiring? Work with artists Connie Anthes and Rebecca Gallo to re-imagine these small but important declarations. By rewriting (or drawing, or filming…) ourselves, we will reshape what we do and how we value it – on our own terms, not according to the value systems of institutional and funding bodies.

Make or Break is a collaboration between Connie Anthes and Rebecca Gallo that began in 2015. Make or Break has worked across gallery, institution, festival and nightclub contexts to produce a range of process-based art projects. These have included using galleries as live work spaces; performing personal admin for an audience; co-writing texts; circulating fictional currencies; making books; rewarding invisible labour; and facilitating conversations and workshops as alternatives to traditional forms of research. Through these projects, Make or Break explores the role and visibility of artist labour, process and audiences in the generation of art works and art market value.
