5 Ways To Use A Regular Work Day To Make The Art World A Better Place
From uncluttering your feed to dinner with mum
Art Stuff 20 Jan 2020

You may think that your job only makes a small impact on the art world, but in fact, it’s the little things that can make the art world a better place. How? Read on, and we’ll explain!


Think outside the box
Today your mission is to treat yourself to a few hours of complete immersion in the art wold. Go to a random gallery and educate yourself about the artist. Who are they? What are their inspirations? What does their work mean to you? You could also reach out to the artist over social media and let them know about your experience.

Email for you
We often forget to let the people in your life know how much you appreciate them and everything they do for you. This also includes those in your professional art world circles. Write a heartfelt email to your favourite gallerist, artist or curator. Put into words just how much they mean to you or acknowledge all the hard work they’ve done over that past years and months and you can be sure this message will motivate them to continue supporting you.

Papa Don’t Preach
Your parents are not happy about your job? Or they don`t even understand what you are doing in your life? That includes making time for those family members who don’t get your art world job. Schedule a date to sit down for cup of coffee or treat your mum for dinner and explain a bit about what you do to let them participate in your life. Tell them about your latest achievements and plans for next months to come.


Detox Your Feed
There’s no way around it; if you want to kill it in the art world, you need to be at the top of your social media game. But that doesn’t mean you need to put up with toxicity in your feed. So be sure to keep your vibe positive and apply a little cleanse: Delete five art world IG accounts that always bring you down when they pop up. This can be the constant self-promoter, the bitchy ex-colleague or the decidedly “humble bragger.” If the account doesn’t spark joy, get rid of it!

Find your muse
Sometimes we need to focus on ourselves. Need a little inspiration? Your task: Go back to the books to look for your personal muse in art history. Whether it’s one of Zeus’ daughters or a revolutionary female artist, find that someone who ignites the creativity within and makes you want to DO, MAKE or ACT in the most original of ways.
