What Does Success in the Arts Look Like? - Interview XVIII with Katie West

In this ongoing interview series on "What does success in the arts look like?" I ask writers, curators, artists, academics, museum workers etc. to give me a personal insight on topics such as rejection, fame, success and financial stability. The conversations are an attempt to challenge the current success narrative that emphasizes that there is just one version of success and that translates into making six-figures. All the voices are by female thinkers up to this point. I am trying to be very intentional about providing voices from diverse backgrounds to facilitate different perspectives to the usually very male dominated success narrative.

What Does Success in the Arts Look Like - Interview XI with Teresa Diehl

We are told the myth that working harder will be rewarded one day with success. The problem is that sacrification does not necessarily lead to the expected outcome and leaves us drained instead. We need to find a more sustainable approach if we talk about work, in particular if we're talking about creative work. In several interviews I ask curators, academics, artists and other friends and colleagues from the creative field on their thoughts on what success in the arts looks like for them. It is part of my long-term project "Art as Labor" that tries to approach labor issues in the arts and provide more personal conversations. It is about finding a sustainable way to work in the arts and to understand that creative work is a long-term commitment.
