I’m learning quite a bit from my time with Eamon O’Kane ( @okaneeamon ) this week. I’ll share a few nuggets I took away from conversation today as applicable and helpful to artistic practices.
Allow the work to live during the installation process, leading up to an exhibition opening. You are not just there to follow a plan and hang stuff up. Let the work continue to live, change and even be created. This may mean simply seeing new connections in the way that you arrange the show. It can even mean adding to or additionally working on a piece you already have. And from what I’m experiencing firsthand,it can also mean using the materials available in your exhibition location and making something new! Now doesn’t that sound like a great way to treasure what could otherwise be a stressful and/or regimented use of time?
