Correspondence to Artists – Response from Naoko Ito

Although the submission date for the open call I am using has now ended, I decided to try to contact the artists that I am interested in using, to see whether they would be hypothetically interested in the proposal.

I emailed Darren Harvey-Regan, Naoko Ito, Ula Dajerling and Abigail Reynolds outlining my proposal and the reasons why I would like to feature their work.

Thus far I am received a response from Ito as follows:

Dear Helanie,

Thank you for checking my art works and contacting me. I am feeling you are working hard on the assignment, which is great. I do feel comfortable you use my works on your assignment. Please keep me informed if you need something from me.

Good luck with your project!


I was extremely pleased with her kind response and helpful words.

I have been unable to find contact information for Kader Attia or his management, so I emailed – an organisation which features his work and biography and inquired as to whether they would be able to assist me in contacting him.

Gallery Spaces – correspondence

I decided to contact the Southbank Centre with regard to the Hayward Touring Curatorial Call, with a view to obtaining some further information about the gallery spaces involved:

I received an email the next day, advising me that they were unable to pass on information about the touring venues but suggested I contact each gallery involved instead.  They did however, give me a link to the Bluecoat’s panoramic page of the gallery spaces, although I am unsure as to whether every gallery space at the Bluecoat will be involved in this exhibition:

I contacted each gallery direct and have so far received a message back from The Bluecoat with floorplans of the galleries. I am yet to hear from the BALTIC and Norwich University of Arts.  However, i did find out from the Hayward Curatorial Team that the fourth gallery involved in the exhibition is The Site Gallery in Sheffield,
