Writing About Your Work – Joannne Laws (NI)

This Webinar “Writing About Your Work” with Joannne Laws took place on Thursday 9th of April 2020.

As an artist, you are required to write about your work for press releases, marketing purposes and for proposals or applications. Conveying concise information in a well-written artist’s statement, biography and CV will assist people in gaining an understanding of your practice.

In this one hour introductory session, Joanne offers strategic advice on preparing artists’ statements and CVs. She will assist you to develop appropriate and clear language to describe your work in a way that makes it engaging, personal and accessible to most readers.

Joanne Laws is Features Editor of the Visual Artists’ News Sheet – Ireland’s main printed publication for the visual arts – where she oversees the commissioning of new writing for an Irish arts readership. Joanne is a regular contributor to a range of Irish and international publications, including Art Monthly and Frieze. She is a member of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA) and has previously developed extended essays, research reports and policy documents for numerous galleries and arts organisations. Joanne also manages the VAI Artists’ Publication Archive and various other publishing projects.
