TYB : a third venue...

Loqueffret (Lokeored) have just confirmed that they will be taking part in the exhibition, which is great news. Three boards so far, with only one rejection.

They have come up with something that I’d never even thought about, which probably positions me somewhat within the art world. They asked me to confirm that I wouldn’t be expecting any payment from them for hosting the exhibition! I’m near the bottom of the arts food chain, I’m expected to pay for the chance to exhibit places (entry fees for exhibition calls and competitions, etc, or rental costs for a week in a gallery). I’m not in the position where I expect a fee to exhibit somewhere. That’s not my reality. Not yet at least, although I do follow campaigns like Paying Artists, etc. Without payment, how are artists supposed to survive? Which of course ties back in to the asynchronous discussions on value in the art market...

Anyway, I’ve sent them confirmation that I won’t be expecting any payment, and a thank you.

I’ll also be sending a follow up e-mail to the others to confirm this, and to nudge them along, although it is school holidays in France this week and next, so there may be a limited response, I might know more by the end of the month (fingers crossed).
