- A few tips: Take well lit pictures of your work on neutral background. Have a few different versions of your artist statement saved – at different lengths from a few lines, less than 50 words to about 100-150 words, ready to pop into different applications (you can tailor work statements to suit briefs for shows). Use curator space, arts news and other call out sites. Prepare for rejection – it’s part of the game, you just might have not been the right fit this time. Keep applying applying applying! 🔥
