G44: Developing an Artist Statement with Shannon Anderson

Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography
401 Richmond St W, Ste 120

Struggling to write an artist statement or project description for a grant application, exhibition proposal or your website? This 3-hour workshop will help take the anxiety out of the process by providing hands-on tips and exercises. Participants will be encouraged to write unique statements that summarize their individual artistic practices, while also learning how to situate their work within a wider artistic framework. A handout outlining the process behind writing effective statements, as well as samples of various published artist/project statements, will be provided. Participants should come prepared with digital documentation of their work and drafts of their statements for group discussion and feedback. A small-class setting of no more than 6 individuals will allow for one-on-one input. Artists practicing in any medium may attend.
