Make a Statement! Artist Conversation

In this Artist Conversation, we will talk about artist statements, biographies, CVs, and resumes – how to write them effectively and clarify when you would use each of them. We will also discuss ways to document and catalog your work. At the end of the conversation, you will have a better understanding on representing and archiving the work you have painstakingly created.

This class is for practicing artists only (membership not required).

Meet the Educator

Cristian Andersson is an artist who works out the Trout Museum of Art as our current Artist in Residence. While he primarily creates abstract oil paintings, in 2016 he started branching off into installation and performance pieces that deal with contemporary concerns: the overwhelming nature of our news, navigating interpersonal communication as it becomes more abstracted through social media, and the balance between notions of the self and the greater community. He is also involved in community art events: curating small exhibitions of local artists, teaching classes to middle and high school students, and working with students from UW-Oshkosh in an annual off-campus invitational exhibition.
