with Robin Cembalest
This session is limited to 15 participants.
Now more than ever, Instagram has become an essential tool for artists to build visibility and networks. Join well-known art Instagrammer Robin Cembalest in this intensive workshop to learn more about the creative and practical strategies which will maximize this essential social platform. Cembalest, former editor of ARTnews, offers a content-oriented approach built around messaging, narrative, and storyboarding.
This workshop covers all elements of a successful Instagram strategy—including profiles, photo editing, design, hashtags, stories, highlights, and tips for maximizing the power of that mysterious algorithm. In the first part of the class, Cembalest will share a presentation covering the topics described above. In the second half, she will do a quick review of each participant’s Instagram and provide feedback.
An early art-world adapter to social media and the former longtime editor of ARTnews, Robin Cembalest has spent her career helping arts professionals to communicate effectively. More than sixteen years at the helm of ARTnews, she shepherded the century-old magazine into the digital era, expanding its global and multicultural content and training generations of interns, writers, and editors. In 2014, she launched her business Robin Cembalest Editorial Strategies, working with museums, foundations, galleries, and social-justice organizations to design and implement mission-based content strategies. She speaks often on social media and career development at schools and residencies and offers webinars for artists on the platform vvrkshop.art. An award-winning investigative journalist who has published widely in the art and mainstream press, Cembalest is best known today as @rcembalest, the handle of her popular Instagram and Twitter feeds.
