As part of the Public Art Melbourne Biennial Lab, The Mechanics Institute are running a series of workshops that allow participants to examine the values placed not only on market trade but on the trade of knowledge.
Workshop with : Make or Break, Sydney
Radicalising the artist biography
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.
Participants please meet at the Biennial Lab Hub, 145 Victoria St, Melbourne you will then be taken to the workshop location within the Market.
