21st Century Artist was a conference held at Artspace in October 2013. It was remarkable for several reasons. Firstly if the proceedings were to be believed then the 21st century artist will be no different to the 20th century artist, and little different to the 19th century artist. Secondly apparently climate change will have no effect on the 21st century artist since only me and the special guest Stine Hebert seemed to care enough to mention it. And finally there was an amazing symmetry, the audience was over 60% women (in fact probably about 80%) and the speakers were over 60% men so apparently the 21st century art world will remain as sexist as the 20th century art world.
Here is the panel I was on.
