The first talk in the Finnish Institute in London's Talk Art/Talk Society series focused on contemporary art and visibility. Should artists be marketing and branding themselves? Are all features of art written for an audience already interested in art – should the art press be reaching for a wider audience? Speakers for the event 22 January 2015 were artist Hans Rosenström (FI) and curator/art critic James Putnam (UK) and it was moderated by Pauliina Ståhlberg, director of the Finnish Institute in London.
