This June we’re highlighting our Learning Resource on the subject of Distribution. In this Learning Resource, published in December 2020, curator Maria Palacios Cruz, artist Morgan Quaintance and artist Rhea Storr responded to five set questions on the subject of​‘distribution’. They share their experiences and knowledge about various aspects of distribution with you in through the link below.

Our series of written learning resources, each covering a different subject, aim to demystify some of the structures of the art and film worlds that artists working with moving image navigate. We invite three contributors to answer set questions on each subject to offer our readers a range of subjective views and experiences of the topic.

Maria, Morgan and Rhea responded the following questions:

    • Through which networks do you encounter artists’ work?
    • How can artists find the best routes for the distribution of their work and feel in control of how their work is seen?
    • What impact are new online contexts having on the distribution of artists’ moving image?
    • How might artists work together to support the distribution of their work?
    • How can work best move between the gallery system and film festival circuits?
