PSFK Conference SF Recap: New Art
At PSFK Conference SF, gallery owner Jen Bekman (20×200) discussed how technology has changed how artists work and their relationships with their patrons. Some highlights:
– Jen Bekman’s gallery has had an interactive aspect from the start (one of the few that had a web site that updated regularly)
– She went online to find artists for her gallery
– Eventually overwhelmed with artist submissions, she started an online competition to control the inflow of submissions
– Hey, Hot Shot! is a photo competition that gives young photographers guidance and sometimes their first break.
