Art Work: An Insight into Working at an Art Gallery
Join us for a morning of discussion at Hauser & Wirth Somerset to meet art industry professionals and discover how a gallery works from the inside.
Our guest speakers include:
•Sara Blair, Head of Marking and Communications at Arnolfini, Bristol
•Dea Vanagan, Director at Hauser & Wirth, Somerset
•Hannah Wright, Registrar at Thomas Dane Gallery, London
Participants will have the opportunity to hear about the speakers’ jobs and how they came to be in that role, as well as advice for those interested in a career within an art gallery. As part of her session, Dea Vanagan will also lead a tour of our current exhibition, ‘Louise Bourgeois. Drawing Intimacy 1939 – 2010’, touching upon curation and exhibition planning.
This event is aimed at young people aged over 16 years who are interested in finding out about career opportunities in art. Students may attend this event alone or be accompanied by their art teachers, tutors and parents.
