The 15 Minutes Program is an opportunity for local and regional artists to have a face-to-face conversation with Artistic Director Stuart Horodner about their work and career development.
Participants bring documentation (photographic prints or laptop computers) and receive feedback on the issues most important to them; formal or theoretical issues, goal setting, training, and exhibition opportunities are discussed. This program effectively removes the need for artists to send unsolicited materials to ACAC and provides a format for candid questions and commentary. While primarily an education initiative, these sessions have identified artists who were subsequently included in exhibits and programs at ACAC.
Meetings take place at ACAC on select Wednesday afternoons throughout the year. Our new Spring dates have just been released: Wed, Apr 24, May 15, June 5. To schedule an appointment, please contact Melanie Beal, Membership and Outreach Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org, or 404.688.1970 x213.
In order to take advantage of the 15 Minutes Program, you must be a member of ACAC. Not a member? Join now!
The 15 Minutes program is part of the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center’s Creative Lives & Careers series (formerly known as Artist Survival Skills), generously funded by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation. This program has inspired other institutions in North America to develop similar feedback sessions with artists.
If you cannot meet for a 15 Minutes session, but want to present an art or exhibition proposal for consideration, send an introductory e-mail to Stuart Horodner, email@example.com.
If there is interest in your work or proposal, additional information will be requested. Please do not send unsolicited materials.
