The Necessary Practice
Launch event: 23 January 2016, 12pm – 2pm
The Necessary Practice examines the difficulties that many graduates face in securing employment in line with their artistic education or talent. Through a body of portraits and a series of interviews with the participants, the exhibition considers how many seek to support their artistic practice through employment outside of the creative industries. Curated by Nikoo Nikkar Esfahani and photographed by Tom Morley, The Necessary Practice brings together artists from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds. The project aims to promote the hidden ambitions and talents that otherwise go unseen, offering a new perspective to the viewer whilst also giving creative practitioners a new platform to promote themselves and their work.
