Navigating the Art World: Professional Practice for the Early Career Artist

The business book is aimed at early career artists and helps to equip them with the practical tools needed to approach their careers, shining light upon topics that are often hidden from view.

It has been written as a series of opinion pieces covering a breadth of topics rather than a how-to guide, such as how to exhibit and sell your works, as well as providing guidance and support for how to stay motivated, and advise on overcoming the periods of insecurity that a career in the arts can often create.

The process of entering the art world and forging a career can be fraught with obstacles to overcome, and so we have written this guide to make the journey as stress-free as possible. Navigating The Art World consists of a mix of advice and tips from ourselves, as well as gallerists, curators, artists, collectors, and other industry experts to give some insight on various ways to enhance your art career. Contributors include Maureen Paley, Jake Chapman, Andy Dixon, Kristin Hjellegjerde, Claus Busch Risvig, and many others.

It has been our intention to write about things that are not often discussed, in the hope that by pulling back the curtain slightly, things are a little clearer for all of us.' - Delphian Gallery
