Making Art Work
A commissioning initiative of the Institute of Modern Art, Making Art Work proposes an experimental role for the institution as administrators of economic stimulus for artists.
Taking place across 2020—during and post COVID-19 lockdowns—the project will see over 40 artists create new works that reinforce the importance of creative labour in a time when the cultural and economic value of art has been diminished.
First round commissioned artists, writers, and facilitators are: Tony Albert, Kieron Anderson, Mariam Arcilla, Richard Bell, Julian Day, Σgg√e|n, Hannah Gartside, Mindy Gill, Kinly Grey, Susan Hawkins, Sally Olds, Amy Sargeant, and Des Skordilis. www.makingart.work.
