Artist Development Series: How to Write an Artist Statement

Artist Statements are one of the most important and frustrating documents for an artist or company to create. One way of relieving the anxiety around writing one is to come to terms with the fact that it is not a final document and will never be complete. It is alive and changing for as long as the artist is making work. Still, it is an intense document to start as it is both succinct, needing to be under a page, and all-encompassing, needing to clearly state the artist's intention, history, and forms. Below we have gathered a few techniques to help get you started or to take the opportunity to update your already existing Artist Statement.
