Synopses & Reviews
This book is like a language course that is meant to enhance your ability to communicate your art and creative ideas to the world. In the new millennium, artists must create new models for exhibitions and sales. They must also be aware of new modes of communication, from social networking to the latest mobile phone apps. How we share visual information is radically shifting, and artists can benefit from all of these new tools. In this hyper-competitive world, the latest software and hardware, as it applies to creativity and promotion, is part of a language you must be conversant in. This book works as a course (downloadable syllabus available) and as a companion volume to Careys recent book, Making It in the Art World.
In this practical and lively guide, Whitney Biennial–featured artist and career coach Brainard Carey will teach you about opportunities that you didn’t even know existed!

Carey then moved back to New York City, where he met Delia Bajo, and cofounded Praxis, which was invited to be in the Whitney Biennial in 2002 and to be in a solo show there in 2007, as well as other venues around the world.

He splits his time between New York City and a studio in New Haven, Connecticut, where he has a radio show on Yale radio WYBC called The Art World Demystified.
