Here are the videos from the second in the Commissioning Conversation talks which aim to demystify the commissions process by inviting artists and art consultants to talk about projects they have worked on with their clients.  The theme for this particluar event which took place 7 February 2016 during the Columbia Threadneedle Prize Exhibition was Context.

We invited Yuki Aruga, Miriam Escofet Assoc RP and Eleanor Watson to speak about the contexts from which some of their favourite commissioned artworks arose. Stories of moving house, the death of a grandparent, renaissance scuplture galleries and even superhero wallpaper emerged! Watch the videos below to see the results.

The next Commissioning Conversation event is Sunday 20th March, 3-4pm with Melissa Scott-Miller, Toby Ward and Anna Bromwich.  Find out more and book your place here.

An artwork commission is a personalised experience that is different for everyone, at Mall Galleries we employ Commission Consultants to guide you through the process of commissioning an artwork from choosing an artist to choosing an artwork that is suitable for your home or business.
