NPA Lab 2020
Established x Emerging: sustaining practices
To mark the conclusion of the newplatform.art Professional Development Programme 2020 we established NPA Lab: sustaining practices, a digital format final project. The framework for the lab provided an opportunity for the participating artists to question what it means to have a sustainable art practice today as economic models for artists are shifting.
We facilitated twelve one-to-one dialogues between newplatform.art alumni and art world professionals to explore ‘How to sustain your practice as an artist today?’. These conversations investigated strategies for success and survival in an art world in flux, where monetisation, value and notions of success are being questioned.
