Didactics, brochures, self-published catalogues, artist talks, documentation, etc. How can providing context enhance the experience of the artwork? How much should an artist tell her audience? This workshop will give an overview of different ways to provide your audience with “a way in” to your work and deepen the experience of it, including everything from institutional standards for labelling, to experimental tours, to the blurb that appears on the back of an exhibition flyer.

Instructor: hannah_g is a writer and artist based in Winnipeg, Treaty 1 territory. Parameter Press recently published her chapbook Not For The World Would I Compare It To Anything, a collection of stories and essays. She is the director of aceartinc.
