Maria Amidu: non-commercial practice and working internationally
Trade Secrets Episode 1: Maria Amidu on making a living and working internationally
Maria Amidu was the first recipient of the Artquest OZ residency that was held at Parramatta Artists Studio’s in Western Sydney. In this film she talks about how she makes a living from a ‘non-commercial’ practice through working in gallery education and shares advice on how artists can best prepare to work abroad.
This film was originally commissioned by Artquest for our tenth anniversary in 2010 as part of the Trade Secrets series, asking ten artists to reflect on their experiences and advice. Filming and editing by Matthew Crichtley; filmed on location at Conway Hall.
