Episode 61

Are you fighting for your art? (When the world throws challenges your way) /61

See Michele's stunning exhibition Shared Wavelengths online at Fenton&Fenton Gallery.


The last few episodes Bec and Michele have been talking about the practice of failing in the art studio. But what about when the challenges are coming from outside the studio?

In the lead up to Michele’s recent exhibition, the universe threw a LOT of challenges her way–from unexpected changes to the exhibition itself, to the flu, falling trees and a rat named Garry. How did she fight to achieve her vision? And, perhaps more importantly, how do we judge the times when we want to push through versus when it would serve us better to pull back?

This conversation ranges across tenacity and turkey sandwiches–it’ll all make sense by the end!
