A Mug’s Game – Vocation or Compulsion?


Shotgun 6 - Public Program

The first in a series of events for the new Shotgun 6 program.



DATE: Friday 9 December 2016

TIME: 5.30pm

LOCATION: Contemporary Art Tasmania


Shotgun is about feeding the intense emotional and intellectual commitment to making artwork. This not-so-simple activity is often diluted by paying homage to the Art World; from attending social events to support colleagues and peers, to the inexorable rounds of grant writing and the often ‘curly’ logistics of delivering an exhibition. A Mug’s Game – Vocation or Compulsion? will side-step the ubiquitous professional development forums and instead focus on those harder to quantify but perhaps more important aspects of what sustains artistic practice today.

Join Shotgun 6 artists Nadege Philippe-Janon and Rob O’Connor, Shotgun 6 mentor Helen Hughes, the fantastic Pat Brassington and project coordinators Craig Judd, Jarrod Rawlins and Kylie Johnson in an informal round-table style conversation. We will talk about the rites of passage, rituals, relationships and those significant ‘moments’ that drive practice.
