Nowhere / Erehwon
Despite the potential today for creating online social networks, the participation in specific kinds of networking remains a high priority need and activity for artist-run institutions, which seek out coalitions of support for their audiences and communities. In particular, these institutions create structures of visibility for those artists who are often under-represented either because they have emerging or experimental practices or because they belong to contexts that fall just outside the market or well-known discursive arenas. This session will review the tactics artists have creatively and collectively undertaken to develop vital networks of visibility.
