Abstract or Description

Gallery Films is a new series of interviews with five galleries from around England that gives insight into the different ways in which exhibition spaces can operate.

Galleries can play a key role in the careers of artists, but for many reaching them appears a remote goal. Understanding how a gallery works and its priorities are the first steps in building a relationship with a space. This series of interviews interrogates 5 different models of gallery operation, identifying the commonalities and the differences in how they work and interact with artists, audiences and their contexts.

In this video MOT International director Chris Hammond talks about the gallery's transition from artist led space to not for profit to its final operational model of commercial gallery. He describes what is particular to MOT International's way of working and what impact this has on how they work with artists.
