I write press releases for all exhibitions.
Publishing Art reviews Curated exhibitions Branding /liazing projects for start ups Through my background in art, I have enabled myself to produce self-published editions, the most recent of which is launching in April at The Drawing Room. Carton is an art magazine with 27 contributors commissioned under my curatorial alias, Numbered Editions. The experience I have had in communication and publicity has given me access to Printed Matter Inc, Tenderbooks, Antenne publishing and Motto distribution.
Gallery presentation, installation and de-installation Liasing with international artists Working closely with Director on concepts and briefs for exhibitions Preparation for art fairs Organizing shipping and logistics of artworks to and from the gallery Having spent a year-and-a-half as Operations Manager at Josh Lilley Gallery, I have learnt vital skills in organisation and attention to detail. Part of my role was managing the day-to-day running of the gallery and liaising with large numbers of people simultaneously. I instigated many successful endeavours, including the designing and distributing of publicity material for two major exhibitions, while also co-ordinating and attending Los Angeles art fairs as a delegate and dealer of artwork. Both events resulted in huge successes for the gallery, with enthusiastic press coverage from newspapers and Frieze magazine. Time management and communication skills played an important part in this success. This has lead to a recent venture with Loose Joints publishing where I assist with design, publicising, packing books to ship and reaching out to international distributors.
