Arrived in Havana in an air conditioned coach, on the steps of the El Capitolio Building we were approuched by a man wanting to take our photo for 2 Cuban Convertable Pasos (£1.25) with a camera made from card board, wood, cellotape, thread bare material and plastic bottles. Here is the result. Amazing I think.

First interview

Posted in Working towards an MA on August 5, 2009 by karenloiswhiteread

Manged to speak to Tony Beckwith yesterday ( Senior Consultant at Haring Woods Assosiates) and have organised an interview with him on Wednesday next week at Haringwoods offices in Covent Garden. I will be asking him :

What it is that their organisation does and what role Artists play within it. How they get funding and does funding criteria impact on the work they do. How do they choose artists for their projects and do they come on board as artist practitioners or as researchers.

I will spend the next few days practising my interviewing techniques and formulating about 10 concise questions for the interview.
