The convergence of ideas
The convergence of ideas: discussed by Brown & Bri and illustrated by a work in progress between them and Peter Richards.
Brown & Bri introduce their work. Adapting artistic, curatorial and business models to develop a hybrid practice, we have been working together for just over two years. Responding to cultural, economic and political shifts, we discuss, debate and share experience, process, authorship, responsibility, success, failure and fees. Since March 2009 we have made new work in various forms – as ex-directors of an arts organisation, taking or re-appropriating photographs, commissioning and publishing, opening a cafe and designing long-term events, project programmes and sometimes strategy for host galleries and institutes.

About Brown & Bri
BROWN&BRI is a creative project founded by Rachel Brown and Brighdin Farren, focused on collaborative, entrepreneurial, sustainable ideas: “We work with individuals, collectives, institutions and sometimes by ourselves to realise our projects, which vary in format but always seek to fill a gap or need in a particular place or time. At the moment we find ourselves operating within diverse spheres of interest. Adapting curatorial, artistic and business models to develop a hybrid practice with the language and functions to fit our needs and whims. We like photographic image, understanding and designing physical space, collections, other people’s agendas and common threads of experience. We are interested in the machinery of the art world and ways of operating, interpreting or reinventing it”.
