Representing your self: Through
The Artist's C.V.
The Artist Statement. Collect one good and one bad example and write your own (200-300 words) for next weeks class.
I found this post on "Artists statements and why they mostly suck" by Bmoreart, some helpful suggestions there. Sarah Schmerler "critic, educator, curator and consulant" workshops writing for artists. From her website I found Moma's PS1: Studio visit project, an online space for NewYorks' emerging artists (with lots of Artists Statements) and there is of course the wonderful "Arty bollocks generator".
