Emma Curd is an artist, action-researcher, facilitator and museum professional.
In 2016, I worked with artist and poet Liv Wynter to create a residency, exhibition and series of live events called 'HOW MUCH ARE THEY PAYING YOU?'
The programme took place during the opening week of New Contemporaries and Liverpool Biennial and ran for a week from Monday 4 July through to Sunday 10 July. During this period, Liv ran a series of events including live performances, an artist talk and a workshop, whilst also producing the publication featured below, whilst I assisted her in a curatorial role.
The aim of 'HOW MUCH ARE THEY PAYING YOU?' was to discuss critical issues facing artists in the arts and in society, addressing themes of class, labour and cold hard cash.
