TKC MUST SEE!!! HERE'S HOW TO START YOUR OWN KANSAS CITY ART GALLERY!!!
Right now, let's contemplate some important info for those who want to open up their homes to a brand new collection of Kansas City randos, strangers and hipsters.
To wit . . .
SPECIAL THANKS TO TAXPAYER-FUNDED DENIZENS OF THE KANSAS CITY ARTS SCENE FOR THIS GUIDE TO OPENING AN INDIE ART GALLERY!!!
To be fair, when a local artist can't place work in one of the many glutted local shows or find an audience online . . . It may be time to think about another career OR at least realize that the fine art-world is just another corporate scam.
Either way, TKC isn't going to stand in between anyone and their dreams . . .
So here's one of many ways to open an art gallery at your place in Kansas City and possibly get one of those nice local grants usually reserved for middle-class casual drug users who still retain a decent working vocabulary of inane jargon.
Infoblog: How to Start Your Own Artist Run Space
The Apartment Gallery or Artist-Run Space often provides an alternative version to local institutions. These spaces showcase the work of under-recognized artists and challenge the current social and cultural moment in an artist community. While these spaces take a lot of energy, their core facets are easy to grasp.
In this workshop with Informality and Artist INC, you’ll pick up the basics and be able to ask questions, form some ideas about starting your own space, and find funding through upcoming local opportunities.
Building a strong network of alternative spaces is going to be incredibly important for Kansas City in 2018. Any artist, visual or otherwise, can apply to be a “cultural partner” as an alternative space for Open Spaces. We will also go over the basics of that application and how it can be a platform for empowering the artist run spaces in our community.
There are two sessions for Do A Thing:
Saturday January 13th at 1:00 PM
& Thursday January 18th at 6:00 PM
Both sessions will take place at
Mid America Arts Alliance
2018 Baltimore Ave
Kansas City, MO 64108
