Internationally renowned artist Patricia Piccinini spoke at the recent NAVA conference Future/Forward about how running an ARI – an artist run initiative – in Melbourne in the late 1990s, had laid the foundations for her career.
Her observations were raw and real. ARIs throw many career curveballs, as well as offer an opportunity for artists to grow their CVs and professional experience. That story, however, extends well beyond the cities of Melbourne and Sydney.
