Interview for Artists

HASHTAGS

List three hashtags which best describe your work plus your handle on Instagram. If you are not on Instagram then add an additional hashtag.

IMAGES

Send up to three new images of yourself in your studio or working area. We would prefer images which have not been seen before so we may use on Instagram to generate interest in your interview.

Send up five new images of works you have completed recently. Please make sure you are not compromising any upcoming calls or shows

BIO and SOCIAL MEDIA

Add a short narrative bio written in third person. Please note that this is not a request for an artist statement and you should leave all mention except for stating what your field is in out of the bio. For example if you are a figurative artist then say and include where you were born, where you live now, where you went to school and any shows, awards or collections you are in.

LINKS

  • List shows you are participating in this year.

  • List collections your work is in.
