How to Write an Artist Statement with Liz Sales (Webinar)
- October 30, 2021
10:00 am - 11:30 am
Your artist statement is a link between you as a photographer and the rest of the world. This statement accompanies your visual work when you are submitting proposals to funders, galleries or publishers. It may also be read aloud at speaking events, included in press releases or used as wall text. That is why you must know how to contextualize your work in words.
Join Liz Sales as she discusses painless writing techniques for crafting clearly and creatively written artist statements and project statements. You will have an opportunity to follow a lecture with examples, ask questions, do a brief writing exercise, and leave with a strategy for writing your statement.
