Im trying to figure out how to display data from custom post's into a custom taxonomy in a different post type.

I currently have 2 sections. Work & Talent. Work will display individual work/pieces and Talent will display individual artists. They both sit on the left hand side, in the admin area, like pages and posts do.

What I would like to happen is once I have created an artist(post) that sits under Talent this data is pulled through to Work. So within Work it would show a custom taxonomy listing out all of the artists names which I can then assign to the piece of work. Then on the front end side of this pull through the artists name and further data from the Talent section but is display on a Work page.

I don't want to have to manually re-enter each artist's information to a Work post as if the artist updates their information I have to manually go in to each Work post and update it.

Any advice on this would be great. Thanks.

you can do this using the plugin "Advanced Custom Fields", just create a field type "post object" and them associate this field with the "Work" custom post.

Later in your template, you can get the artist data, a object with all elements by your custom post named Talent.

Advanced Custom Fields have a great documentation and is free, you can download it from http://wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-custom-fields/
