In this special event coinciding with the launch of The Artist as Culture Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life, join the publication's editor, Sharon Louden (artist, educator, artist advocate) with Hrag Vartanian (Editor-in-Chief and Co-founder of online arts forum Hyperallergic) in conversation with Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh, Co-Directors, Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane.
The Artist as Culture Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life is a collection of essays by 40 visual artists describing how they extend their practices outside of their studios. All of these contributors have impactful, artistic activities as change agents in their communities. Their first-hand stories show the general public how contemporary artists of the 21st century add to creative economies through their out-of-the-box thinking while also generously contributing to the well-being of others.
