Writing an artist’s statement
Approaching a Gallery
Artwork in an Exhibition
Artwork on the Internet
Exhibition Catalogue
Exhibition Proposal
Curator Proposal
Entry Form for a Competition
Grant Proposal
Press Release
Promotional Brochure
For us, artist statements are like road maps: they give us clues to better understand the work we are seeing. Optimally, they should be as clear and to the point as possible, thereby making it more likely that any background information that is important is actually passed along and internalized. Statements that are lost in jargon and art speak miss the chance to educate us. Our attention span for this kind of stuff is short (press releases fall into the same category), so make it hard hitting or you’ll lose us quickly, and we’ll go back to looking at the pictures and deciding for ourselves.
