You will need to write an artist statement for ArtsX installation. The statement should be no longer than 1/2 of standard letter sized paper. This statement must specifically address the installation work you created in this class. This statement will be hung next to your artwork!
There are many different approaches you can take to HOW you write the statement and what you choose to INCLUDE in the statement. Examples of what you may want to include / think about are:
- Paragraphs about your underlying concept or THEME of this work:
- Your artistic style (as seen in this body of work)
- Your inspirations or motivations (for the body of work)
- Info about your PROCESS (as relevant to this work)
- The medium you've selected - why you chose it and how you use it (if relevant to concept)
- Quotes from research that support your idea
- Consider your audience when writing it (it is not a CG/video community)
- You may include a short bio paragraph with a sentence or two.

2. Text draft of your artist statement.
DRAFT DUE November 10th
Final Artist Statement DUE the week before ArtsX. Revised, updated FINAL version due based on instructor feedback on first draft.
Remember poor spelling, bad grammar, mixed tenses, unclear thoughts - diminish the impact. Check for spelling and typos. Look for grammatical errors, especially mixing tenses. Be aware of repetition. Do you often use the same descriptive terms? Just give the reader hints to get started; do not make the statement a critique. Check again for action verbs. They give much more substance to the prose. Lose the jargon. It will not seem erudite, just heavy and condescending. Do any red flags go up? If something does not make sense, face up to it and fix it.
