WHAT'S ON - ARTS ALIVE

ARTS ALIVE WITH ALTA CAIN

ARTS ALIVE is a live-streamed interview series created and hosted by our exhibition curator, Alta Cain. Through a series of informal conversations with artists from a variety of creative backgrounds, many of whom we represent, Alta aims to explore everything from the meaning of art to the meaning of life.

"I believe that artists are far more than the art they create or the tools they use - they are creative problem solvers who by their very desire to create, challenge the status quo. They create because some part of them, hidden or otherwise, imagines the world differently; they percieve a reality that is beyond what already exists. It is this perception, this imagination or sixth sense that I believe is at the root of our creativity - this drive to create - and the more we discuss and explore it together, the better we will be able to understand ourselves". - Alta Cain
