AN Re:view Bursary – The Mentor

by Chantal

I was hoping to share what I learned from my first mentoring meeting this week but  due to circumstances, its been postponed till the 21st.

arnaudInstead I thought I’d share with you who my mentor is actually going to be. I feel very priviledged that the an re:view bursary will be funding 3 studio sessions with Danielle Arnaud.

Danielle is director of Danielle Arnaud Contemporary Art – a fantastic gallery based in a Georgian townhouse in Kennington. The remit of the gallery is to“encourage artists to develop their practice without the constraints of market through a programme of curated exhibitions, solo shows and projects, both within the gallery and the public realm”. The gallery has showcased some great work. Artists work that I’ve particularly enjoyed include – Sarah Woodfine, Rieko Akatsuka, Helen Maurer and Sophie Lascelles.

Danielle is also a founding member of Parabola (a commissioning and curatorial body dedicated to the production of contemporary art and critical debate) and co-curated Tatton Park Biennial in 2008, 2010, and 2012.

I have great admiration for Danielle Arnaud and so was absoultely delighted when, in applying for the bursary, I approached her and she agreed to work with me on the scheme. I am confident she will be a fantastic mentor and I’m really looking forward to learning from her.
