The guest selectors this 12 months have been:

  • Katriona Gillespie – a contemporary Australian artwork skilled

Gross sales

1 comment I would make is that this exhibition has NOT sold as numerous as I believe it could and should really have performed. 

I assume there may possibly be three explanations for this

  • the Edition measurement is not famous on the label future to the print – and I hardly ever ever invest in a unframed print with out recognizing what the edition measurement is (The info is out there – it can be just not there to seize the instant when someone is intrigued!)
  • I’ve not viewed a ton of internet marketing for the exhibition – and there are really number of social media posts about it.
  • which is in element down to artists not earning the effort to market place their perform both! Gail Brodholt’s write-up is an isolated contribution!


PS If browsing you may be fascinated in viewing the Lubaina Humid exhibition next door at Tate Fashionable – which also finishes on 2nd Oct.
