From when Sophie graduated she has worked at many places in many countries. Sophie would also work for artist residencies which is where you can work at galleries, that are artist run. Sophie gave us some insight into the work we can go onto doing after we graduate after, whether it be develop work in a creative community, collaborate with other artists as you have more freedom to play around with type of work you aim to produce.

Sophie went off to Finland to work in Arteles creative centre, she also went to Iceland to work in Sim for artists for the community. In each of these she was able to have her own studio to work in to better create her work in her own space.

At the end of her presentation she gave us a list of websites that we can look into in our own time that may be suitable for what we want:

MDP.com – Mark Devereux Projects

outsiderxchanges.com

curatorspace.com

artinliverpool.com

a-n.co.uk

I found her talk most interesting and gave a great insight into what we could achieve when finishing university. Sophie was very open and honest about all of her work, saying that we weren’t to get work straight away but it takes minimum 3 years to get noticed and start producing work.
