To celebrate |notfair|’s eleventh year of showcasing independent artists who do not fit the commercial mould, MARS Gallery are delighted to announce a lively panel discussion surrounding the issue of representation. Called ‘2021: Do I still need gallery representation?’, this talk features gallerists, represented artists, and unrepresented artists in conversation about whether it is still actually beneficial for an artist to be represented by a gallery.
On the panel will be Ash Coates (unrepresented multidisciplinary artist and exhibiting in |notfair| and Dr Sam Leach (co-founder of |notfair| and talented contemporary artist represented by Sullivan + Strumpf). Joining us from Sydney will be director of Olsen Gallery, Tim Olsen, and gallery Director of MARS, Andy Dinan will be facilitating and moderating the discussion.
