Craft a captivating artist statement

Register for the Workshop

Your artist statement is the worlds first formal introduction to your work. A compelling statement showcases your skillset, your work and communicates vision as an artist. Building a clear and concise statement will open doors for you to access funding and opportunities and speak to curators and industry professionals.

In this two-part virtual workshop series, artist and curator Genevieve Wallen will guide you to creating a unique artist statement. Artists will have the opportunity to receive 1:1 feedback on their work and tips on how utilize your statement.

Meet the Facilitator

Geneviève Wallen is a Tiohtiá:ke/Mooniyang/Montreal and Tkaronto/Toronto-based independent curator, write, researcher, and workshop facilitator. She obtained a BFA in Art History at Concordia University (2012) and an MFA in Criticism and Curatorial Practice at OCAD University (2015). Wallen’s practice is informed by intersectional feminism, intergenerational dialogues, and BIPOC healing platforms offering alternatives to neo-liberal definitions of care. Her ongoing curatorial explorations include the practice of gift-giving, carving space for unfinished thoughts, and musings on the intersection of longevity and pleasure.
