Inside Representation: Paths to Working with Dealers and Agents
January 18, 2024, 12:00 – 1:30 PM ET

Attaining representation is a goal for many artists and performers. While it’s seen by many as a marker of success and support, it’s often unclear how to get representation. This panel will focus on how to attain representation with a gallery or agent. In this panel discussion, you’ll hear directly from a visual artist and performing artist on their paths towards reaching this milestone, as well as from the gallerist and agent’s perspective on what factors they consider when deciding whether to represent an artist. Time for Q&A will be provided.

NYFA is pleased to present this free online workshop in par tnership with the Northern Virginia Local Arts Agencies a special collaboration of the Office of the Arts, City of Alexandria, ArtsFairfax, and Arlington Cultural Affairs.
