Jamaica Creative minds get aid in preparing Artist Statement

The best artist’s statement is authentic, written in the artist’s own voice, using the ‘first person’, in a language which is easily understood, and accessible.


ALL JAMAICAN ARTISTS (visual, literary, performing, culinary), need to have an ARTIST STATEMENT. Especially visual and literary artists!!!!


… an insight into the artist’s work and the reason and how it came about. It really is a brief summary of what an artist would say in order to explain their own work in person to others. It is written and focuses on the present with reference to information from the past that may be relevant.

The best artist’s statement is authentic and is written in the artist’s own voice, using the ‘first person’, in a language which is easily understood, and accessible. It usually is 2 paragraphs long, but can be longer depending on situation it is being used for.

ARTIST STATEMENTS are required for several purposes including:

* Approaching a Gallery
* Artwork in an Exhibition
* Artwork on the Internet
* Biography
* Exhibition Catalogue
* Exhibition Proposal
* Curator Proposal
* Entry Form for a Juried Competition
* Grant Proposal
* Introducing yourself to prospects
* Press Release
* Promotional Brochure
* Public Speaking Opportunities
* Talking to Clients at a Private View
* Sales Presentation by an Agent
* Writing a Letter about your Art
* Your Artist’s Blog
* Your Verbal Introduction
* Your Website


A good artist statement supports the artist’s professional practice, by for example:
* Giving brief information to support an exhibition or catalogue
* Submitting a proposal
* Applying for a grant
Artist statements should therefore be:
* Concise
* Effective in communicating the details you wish to emphasize
* Written in the first person
* Written primarily in the present tense
