Making Art Work: Round 2

Since launching the first round of Making Art Work commissions a month ago, we’ve seen Tony Albert topple statues, watched Hannah Gartside lovingly make furballs from her studio, we listened to Mariam Arcilla interview creatives in New York and South Korea, tinkered with homemade instruments with Susan Hawkins, and much more.

The next round of new projects will be produced by: Hannah BrontëMonika Noémi CorreaMerinda DaviesJulian DayAna Paula EstradaGordon HookeyChantal FraserJenna LeeSteven OliverSarah Poulgrain, and Angelica Roache-Wilson. These will be launched 10 August 2020 on and across different platforms.

In the meantime, continue to explore the first round of projects and keep an eye out for new additions like Tori-Jay Mordey‘s poster Listen, and new episodes of Interno.

Making Art Work proposes an experimental role for the institution as administrators of economic stimulus for artists. Developed in response to the COVID-19 lockdowns, the project aims to reinforce the importance of creative labour in a time when the cultural and economic value of art has been diminished.
