We are super charged to have met Sharon Louden and be connecting with her at RAYGUN PROJECTS, Toowoomba in 2017. Sharon has recently published a book Living and Sustaining a Creative Life: Essays by 40 Working Artists and next year is touring Australia together with Hrag Vartanian to launch her next publication The Artist As Cultural Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life
We love everything about this amazing woman, artist, writer and cultural producer. Here is a snippet about her writings and what she is putting out into the world. Stay tuned for April 22nd 2017, when she and 3 others visit our shores and speak in depth with our community on what it is to be a culture producer in the second decade of the 21st Century.
“For my second book, 40 artists wrote essays who go beyond what they do in the studio to empower their communities and provide a link to the public, educating the world that an artist is an essential culture producer. There are many artists in my second book who are profoundly making a huge difference in the world in many different ways such as Andrea Zittel, Edgar Arceneaux, Alec Soth, William Powhida,the Dufala Brothers, Wendy Red Star, Steve Lambert and many more including, and most especially, Australian artist Khaled Sabsabi.”
