Key Takeaways

“Never be afraid to ask for help!”

  • Liezel says Subject Matter came out of love for buying photographic art. She saw people buying expensive couches and sofas, but a mass produced piece of art. She wanted to change that
  • Liezel & Kitty mention we can google everything, but not prices for art! As an art student, you should speak to your art school to introduce business courses. You gotta make a living! You got your costs and hours spent and rather starting low, you can always go up!
  • On befriending gallery owners, Liezel & Kitty recommend to go to their shows and befriend them, be there for them attend the openings! You will develop a good relationship.
  • Being a curator is a teamwork between the gallery and the artists – there needs to be a mutual respect and collaboration!
