Documentation is extremely valuable to an artist and is the currency with which you will be able to promote your practice further.
It is an important record of the work and process, and it is often required by the commissioner. Documentation can include photographs, analysis and evaluation text of the process and finished work.
It might be published in a catalogue with critical or reflective essays or commentary. It might also work well as a video work available to be downloaded from a website or blog.
Greystones Educate Together National School appointed a voluntary committee with relevant expertise to oversee the per cent for art commissioning process. An external curator, Máire Davey, was appointed specifically for her expertise in working in a highly collaborative way as meaningful involvement from the students and school was viewed as central to the process. The procurement route chosen was limited invited competition.
