Stuart Jones is exhibiting in this group show about people and art itself. A polymorphic exhibition curated by Vanessa Giorgo, Anna Kolosova and Melissa Vipritskaya Topal.
There is this idea(l) of the artist creating art for art’s sake, living la vie bohème, being envied for their freedom and having the liberty to express their individuality. But is this the case?
Being a practicing artist does not necessarily mean one’s life is effortless and without any obstacles. Taking the (often subconscious) decision to become an artist comes with costs. Countless external factors hinder many artists from reaching their full potential by limiting their existence. Living in a world where the humanities and, in particular, the arts, are not favoured by the wider socio-economic system as a fruitful financial ecosystem, indicates that the majority of people working in the creative industries will have to find alternative means of supporting themselves financially.
