Last Saturday (13th February) I was a part of the ‘The News Agents’ show at Resonance 104.4 FM in London.
The show’s title was ‘Art Survival Strategies in London’. It was hosted by artist, friend and neighbour Rebecca Feiner.
For those of you who missed the live broadcast you can now listen to it on Resonance’s Mixcloud:
More about the show:
Everything you ever wanted to know on art survival strategies and was too afraid to ask? From DIY aesthetic of launching a gallery space, to the 10th anniversary of artists resale rights being established, to crowd funding, the new economy of hours with Sarah Henderson of Echo, public commissions, to role of patrons, sponsors and the dangers of art wash.
In the studio Rebecca Feiner navigates the territory with guests from DACS Mark Waugh Head of Research and Innovation, and Iranian born Artist Architect, Phillip Hall Patch about his quietly controversial dissolving salt sculptures. Hall Patch’s work investigates the tensions between stability and transience, often through ephemeral, time-based works creating traces of memory.
Phillip Hall Patch was selected artist for the HOUSE Brighton Festival 2014 along with Yinka Shonibare MBE, APT Gallery, London, July 2013, and Orange County Centre for Contemporary Art, Los Angeles 2012. Spring 2016 he is the chosen artist for London’s first dedicated space for outdoor art, which engages directly with outside conditions responding to, rather than withstanding the elements. Elements Gallery London @ Lubomirov/Angus-Hughes.
Joining us in the studio international photographer and artist Ben Hopper primarily working with dancers, circus artists and contemporary nudes, he will be sharing his experience of his successful crowdfunding project “Transfiguration“.

I’ll be giving a more focused talk about crowdfunding at theprintspace as part of my Transfiguration exhibition this coming April. Exact dates and information will be published soon on my blog and FB page.
