Per Ted Hope – Artists must be discoverable, ubiquitous, and produce consistent output to engage their audience. #artistservices
but I rather only make art when truly inspired rather than labor for consistent output and produce non exciting work.
Ted Hope @TedHope
if we are making work for an audience, we hv to build the audience. You can’t just make it&hope they come. @CiaraLeiLacy
I agree. The type, quantity, rhythm of work help cultivate a particular audience. Also, it needs 2 be discoverable.
