Living and Sustaining a Creative Life: Forum for Discussion

EFA PROJECT SPACE
2ND FLOOR

WEDNESDAY, MAY 7TH
6:00 PM

Moderated by: Sharon Louden, Artist and Editor

Panelists include:

Sean Mellyn and Jennifer Dalton, Artists and Contributors to "Living and Sustaining a Creative Life"

Christian Viveros-Faune, Writer, Curator and Art Critic for the Village Voice

Paddy Johnson, is the founding Editor of Art F City and writes a column on art and Internet for artnet news

At a time when art is increasingly viewed as a commodity and art-school graduates feel that gallery representation is imperative for making a living and a career, it is more important than ever to show the reality of how an artist sustains a creative practice over time. The 40 essays collected in "Living and Sustaining a Creative Life" are written by artists in their own voices and take the form of narratives, statements and interviews. Although each story is different and unique, the common thread is an ongoing commitment to creativity, both inside and outside the studio, that helps define what "success" means to a professional artist today.

Named as one of the Top Art Books of 2013 by Hyperallergic, and already in its fourth printing in five months, "Living and Sustaining a Creative Life" unveils the mystery behind sustainable creativity. This event is a part of a 45+ stop book tour of town-hall forums all over the country.
