Some of the questions posed for their individual Talks:

  2. What ‘helps’ the art and the submission, what detracts?

  3. Artist Statements and CV’s: are they important in your selection?  What do you look for there?

  4. What’s of interest currently - to you, in the art market, trends?

  5. Your personal bugs and beefs - why you love to work with an artist ,or why you will never engage with that one again.
