Labels/didactics/statements/ephemera: How is Text used in a Gallery Context?

We’ll work together to create compelling artist statements and artist bios for the gallery context and consider why you need to write these, how they’ll be used, and discuss what makes a good statement or set of promotional materials. We’ll help you fit your voice into a gallery context including options, precedents, and ideas. Focusing on the materiality of language, we’ll experiment with ways to generate language that reflects your work in exciting ways.

Developed in collaboration with The Writing Centre, Libby Leshgold Gallery, Career Development and Work Integrated Learning Office, these workshops offer you the best practices, methods and tools as you prepare for The Show.
