Navigating the New Landscape for Artists with Eamonn Maxwell

23/04/2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join CEC co-founder Medeia Cohan and respected Irish fine art curator and mentor Eamonn Maxwell for an insightful conversation exploring how artists can continue to function and work in this new landscape. These are challenging times for visual artists at all stages of their career, many of whom may have had exhibitions cancelled, are no longer able to access their workspaces or are struggling with big losses of income.

Eamonn and Medeia will look at how artists can use these restrictions to focus on new approaches to making and marketing their work and what the future looks like for the fine art sector as a whole.
