The Introducing Series is an initiative that creates occasions for emerging artists to be formally introduced by an advocate of their work and champion of their future career. Artists will come from a spectrum of disciplines, including visual artists to performance artists, writers to musicians, film-makers. The series' constant is the principle of an introduced artist, the variable element is the appropriately diverse composition of each event.
To accompany the piece in the window space, a celebration of each artist and the formal introduction will take place in the form of a conversation between the champion and artist during an invitational evening. They are posted in its entirety every two weeks here on rogersmithlife.com
