Changing Topics Conversation: Developing/Generating Ideas and Concepts
Last week we renewed our conversation dinner series with a lively discussion around "Developing/Generating Ideas and Concepts". Our three invited artists contributed fantastic, diverse perspectives on the topic. The proposition of considering content in lieu of concept seemed tremendously freeing, in an effort to avoid the overwhelm that can come from the stigma of "concept" (i.e., conceptual art, etc.). By the same token, it was agreed that concept is often driven by making. Following our conversation, the artists had the opportunity to walk through the Entrance Exhibit and discuss work with the mentees.
Thank you to our invited guests: Kelly Rathbone, Karl Burkheimer and Nan Curtis for sharing your insights with us.
