I am not trained as a visual artist—I hold my graduate degree in dance choreography, and before grad school I worked primarily in live theatrical concert dance. However, in grad school my focus shifted, and I started developing work in performance that should live in a gallery space. Now that I am out of school, I have a great new project in the works, but I have no idea how to make it happen! To get shows produced in dance is a complicated and nuanced procedure, but I at least understand the steps. I am totally at a loss on how to enter into the art world and negotiate a show. I’m not interested in getting the work into the “market” per se, so a for-profit gallery is probably not my best bet. Can you let me know some of the unspoken rules for approaching art spaces/museums with performance work? I want to make sure that I don’t seem tone deaf to the conventions of the form.Theodora Skipitares, Skysaver, performance at Galerie ak, Frankfurt, November 8–16, 1980. Courtesy the artist. Photo: Christian Hanussek If it were a concert show in a traditional theater, here’s how I’d approach it: I would narrow down a couple of producers, send them a press packet, invite them to rehearsals and in-progress showings to develop a relationship, and then finally just ask for a show. For people I already knew, I might do an exploratory email pitch: “I have this cool idea in development, would you be interested in talking?”

Good question! You’re obviously motivated and organized, and also sensitive to understand that changing your approach and observing the rules of contemporary art spaces will serve your goals better than charging ahead with the protocols for pitching to traditional theaters. I sent your question to Katya Min, Curator of Public Programs at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, and she had a lot of good advice for you. To begin with, she says, “Whether or not you’re an established or an emerging artist, navigating the turbulent waters of the art world can be a taxing and largely intimidating process. Before elaborating on the areas that I would be conscious of, coming from a curator’s perspective, I will offer this relatively common-sense advice: There are really no right or wrong approaches. Each curator is different, thus each will have a different method of seeking artists or projects. The approach I would recommend is actually not dissimilar from the approach you described for traditional theater, but with that said, I hope these tips will help guide you on your way.”

Unfortunately failing the bar exam is not an uncommon occurance, and the traditional reviews that are out their simply are not the right fit for every student. will offer a free consultation with an attorney coach that is an expert on bar exam preparation. They will review past results and actually look for any factor that could affect bar exam performance. Often, the more times a candidate takes a bar exam, the more difficult it becomes for them to pass as the stress and anxiety take their toll. Start with the free consultation, and take it from their...switching bar r
