Providing artistic advisory services to Proposition Studios

The brief

Proposition Studios is a charity that supports emerging artists by providing affordable studios, presenting exhibitions, and supporting the professional development of its artist community. Proposition Studios also runs a public programme which aims to provoke imagination and action around the potential positive impact human beings can have on biodiversity and ecological resilience. In its current Camden base, located next to the iconic Roundhouse, Proposition Studios turned to Alice Black in early 2023, asking her to define its artistic programme.

Our solution

Since April 2023, Alice has worked closely with the Proposition Studios team to propose models of engagement with artists, shape its artistic programme, commission new work, and put in place processes for delivering its artistic activities.
Alice has curated Open Studio days and temporary exhibitions, which align with Proposition Studios’ mission to give opportunities to emerging artists to show their work and support a positive approach to the ecology.
Alice has also provided introductions to her extensive network to help promote Proposition Studios’ innovative mission to a wide range of potential supporters and partners.

Client review

Dr Anne Thidemann, MD Proposition Studios, said:
‘Alice’s experience of working with artists has been hugely valuable for Proposition Studios and our artists. Her ability to understand our operating model and put forward adapted programming approaches has been crucial to support the development of our ambitions and realise critical projects. She is adaptable and solution-focused. Her communication manner is clear, timely and always positive. Combining creative flair with depth of experience of curation and programming, Alice is playing a key part in Proposition Studios’ success.’
