Questions & Appearances
For Q&A, curators are invited to conduct interviews with a small group of artists they’re curious about, have a relationships with, or otherwise follow. Starting with a set of questions, each artist is asked to respond with the selection of a single image, for each question asked.
Each questions and its associated image will be published one-at-a-time via our primary social media platforms: Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to a collective following of more than 40,000. Each Q&A will be published simultaneously on all platforms. Each Q&A interview will be announced on Friday, and presented in its entirety, over the course of one weekend (Saturday and Sunday)
