Opening Wednesday, September 16th, from 6PM - 7PM
Well into the quarantine, artists are seeking creative ways to share their work and practice. With online tools becoming increasingly prominent in the age of social distancing, one effective approach is scheduling a virtual studio visit.
Curatorial consultant Audra Lambert and public relations expert Heather Zises, members of Ninth Street Collective, host a workshop offering tips on how to successfully plan, promote, and execute a remote visit, even if you do not have access to your studio.
New York-based curator and art critic Audra Lambert is founder and chief curator of Antecedent Projects, a consultancy focused on site-specific projects. With recent projects held at the Yeshiva University Museum, La Esquina, and Fountain House gallery, Lambert has also curated exhibitions with the New York City Parks Department, FLUX Art Fair, White Roof Project, and more. She served as curatorial manager for Art in Odd Places 2018: BODY, and contributes to Americans for the Arts and Artefuse, among others.
Heather Zises has over twenty years of experience in public relations, copywriting, and editing, with extensive knowledge of contemporary art and lifestyle platforms. She is editor of the award-winning book 50 Contemporary Women Artists, and director of communications at the Magnusson Group, where she manages marketing and social media for estate sales and appraisals. Raised in Boston as a ballerina, Zises holds a BA in English and dance from Cornell University, and an MA in art history and connoisseurship from Christie’s.
