Beyond the Studio: What Do Artists/Writers/Curators Need? by Christian L. Frock

Please take some time to visit KQED Arts today. I am honored to be included in Christian L. Frock‘s piece “Beyond the Studio: What do Artists/Writers/Curators Need?” I highly encourage reading through the thoughtful responses from members of the arts community such as Anuradha VikramMegan WilsonChristine Wong YapElizabeth TravelslightMatthew Harrison TedfordTaraneh HemamiMatt Sussman, and Rhiannon E MacFadyen. It would be great for you, dear reader, to answer the question as well by leaving a comment.

Trust me, it’s a great conversation and much-needed. Lastly, I agree with Christian when she says, “Figuring out what artists need isn’t complicated — start by listening.”
