Sean Fletcher and Isabel Reichert: The Economic Realities of Being an Artist

As a postscript to the suite of Shop Talk conversations, I wanted to leave you with artist team Sean Fletcher and Isabel Reichert’s PowerPoint presentation from the closing evening of discussion. The question we focused on that night — and there were many other threads of direction we might have followed — was What are the economic realities for artists?

You can see all of the posts related to this discussion series here.

Sean Fletcher and Isabel Reichert have been collaborating since 1999 on conceptually based performance works, interventions, writings, installations, videos, photography, and prints. The artists use their personal arguments to investigate the dynamic interplay between power and vulnerability. Humorous, subtle, and always thought-provoking, Fletcher and Reichert use their art to press emotional buttons and broaden our understanding of the human condition. Visit their website.
