Please take some time to visit KQED Arts today. I am honored to be included in Christian L. Frock‘s piece “Beyond the Studio: What do Artists/Writers/Curators Need?” I highly encourage reading through the thoughtful responses from members of the arts community such as Anuradha VikramMegan WilsonChristine Wong YapElizabeth TravelslightMatthew Harrison TedfordTaraneh HemamiMatt Sussman, and Rhiannon E MacFadyen. It would be great for you, dear reader, to answer the question as well by leaving a comment.

Trust me, it’s a great conversation and much-needed. Lastly, I agree with Christian when she says, “Figuring out what artists need isn’t complicated — start by listening.”

I'm @Sweden

Besides Jens Lekman (LOVE his music!!), admittedly, I don’t know very much about Sweden. Per the recommendation of a dear friend and talented poet, Liz Mariani, Curators of Sweden may just give me a bit more insight on Swedes. Now, I’m not too sure the US could ever pull off something like this. Then again, the first thing that comes to mind is the selection process for the Tweeter of the Week? You be the judge and take a look.

Culturehall is a curated online resource for contemporary art where selected artists can share their work with curators, gallerists, collectors and other artists. We provide free artist portfolios with an easy to use set of web-based tools to make presenting art online simple and efficient. Our community of artists consists primarily of MFA graduates, arts professionals and teaching artists. Membership is available by invitation or application. ~ From Culture Hall website (About)
