Gallery Films is a new series of interviews with five galleries from around England that gives insight into the different ways in which exhibition spaces can operate.
Galleries can play a key role in the careers of artists, but for many reaching them appears a remote goal. Understanding how a gallery works and its priorities are the first steps in building a relationship with a space. This series of interviews interrogates 5 different models of gallery operation, identifying the commonalities and the differences in how they work and interact with artists, audiences and their contexts.
Furtherfield exists as both an online and physical space which focuses on digital networks and how new technology and the internet impacts on art, community and beyond. Furtherfield Co Founder and Co Director Ruth Catlow talks about the gallery, it's programme and how it's focus impacts on their approach to engaging with artists.
