Generator Project’s Member’s Show 2020

Stars: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

The Member’s Show at Generator Projects is one of the highlights of my year. I’ve been taking part on and off since my last year as an undergraduate art student and it’s a personal barometer of where I am in my art practice.

Some years I submit a fabric piece, some years a film, some years a print, some years a painting. I love attending the opening and returning later in the month to pick my favourite pieces. Anyone can take part if they pay the (very reasonable) membership fee. It’s also really helpful in learning about pricing artwork. And, maybe one of these days I’ll even be able to buy something!

For the past year or so I’ve been an Associate Committee Member of Generator Projects. It’s been incredibly educational. I learned that I’m good at invigilating, and that I’m afraid of digital media (which is ironic given that my day job is as a communications and marketing coordinator for a digital arts festival). I’ve learned how to hang paintings, how to curate shows, and how to help artists set up their spaces.

There was a period of time last year where I felt a bit down about my involvement. I didn’t feel very useful and I was worried that it was just magnifying my flaws. But, on consideration, I’ve decided to lean into it. It’s good to bad at things, everyone begins somewhere. And the skills I can learn by helping out at Generator Projects are skills I desperately need as an artist, an art facilitator, and as an aspiring curator.

I’m looking forward to being even more involved in next year’s Member’s Show.
