Artist and Assemble Papers contributor Tai Snaith has conducted a series of conversations with mid-career and emerging women and non-binary artists whom she admires, a talented group that includes (other AP alumni) Paola Balla and Stanislava Pinchuk.

The conversations explore shifts and similarities that artists face in their lives, and artistic practices. Together, they attempt to break down the how and why of making art. Self-doubt, control, meaning, shame, risk, parenthood and radicalism are just some of the topics covered. The work is part of an ongoing project which began in 2017 as part of ACCA’s exhibition Unfinished Business: Perspectives on art and feminism (2017–2018), and will act as a springboard for Tai’s further studio-based work.
