In recent years, the emerging domain of Immersive and Experiential art has had an unprecedented impact on commercial event making, while radically expanding what the experience of entering and feeling the work of an artist can mean. With our panel, we'll be looking at the delivery system for Immersive and Experiential art, connecting to the wider art world in unique ways. We ask: what are the opportunities for artists to live and prosper as we move through and emerge into a changed landscape for the arts?
