The art world demystified : how artists define and achieve their goals by Brainard Carey( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Art World Demystified unfolds the confusing and often treacherous terrain of the art world, revealing the inner workings of a system that has few rules but many opportunities. In this volume, artists will find their own questions reflected and addressed, including: How does an artist penetrate the inner circle of the art world? How do museums choose exhibits? How can an artist reach critics and get feedback? How do artists make a living, and how much can they expect to make? What are the “rules” of the art world? Why is it all so mysterious? Author and successful artist Brainard Carey explores these queries and more, giving concise answers and guidance on such issues as talking to curators, navigating suitable promotion, and maintaining motivation, alongside profiles of well-known artists. He enables, and encourages, readers to not only navigate the mysteries of the artist’s career, but also to create their own mythologies by presenting their work in a way that generates interest, questions, and an invitation to the inner circle

The content of desperation : a true story by Praxis( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two artists (Delia Bajo and Brainard Carey) live in the East Village of New York City. They get married, and after Delia gets pregnant, they decide to have the child, faced with neither insurance or a steady income. They ask for help in a unique way--by sending out one hundred thousand letters via email asking for advice, a donation, or help of any kind. While they are trying to make art, to raise a child, to live, they are hounded by the cruelest of predators --the bills. Strangely perhaps, they persevere through the most desperate situations with tempers and tears, and have not given up. This book is one story of survival, of desperation, of a gamble that they took with the stress and anticipation of a child on the way. In the letters of advice that came in and are printed here, there are glimpses of man's humanity to man. And even when there is a bit of inhumanity, it often carries an overtone of care, undermining its angry surface. This is a book of hope."--P. [4] of cover
