Event Details

As an artist, you will be required to write about your work for a variety of reasons including press releases, proposals and applications. Focusing on the artist statement, this session will equip participants with a text to work from, develop and adapt in the future.

Over the course of the day, we will work interactively to produce texts that address the concepts, approaches and methodologies particular to your work. In addition to concise, accessible language, we will also consider writing as a dynamic and reflective tool, exploring the more expansive, generative ways in which writing can meld with an arts practice, operating within or alongside it.

In discussing how participants might develop a long term relationship with writing that will serve their practice and its shifting demands as it develops over time, we will also cover various opportunities regarding the production of text in relation to an artwork or exhibition.

Sue Rainsford is a recipient of an Arts Council Literature Bursary Award, the VAI/DCC Art Writing Award and a MacDowell Colony Fellowship. Her debut novel, Follow Me To Ground, received the Kate O’Brien Award. She is Writer-in-Residence at Maynooth University.
