  • “Don’t Quote Deleuze”: How to Write a Good Artist Statement

    Writing about art is hard. Writing about art that you made can be even harder. We hear artists say, “If I knew how to describe my work in words, I’d be a writer, not an artist.” While this may be true, what’s “truer” is the fact that at some point, you as an artist will be asked to write an artist statement—and whether or not it is good, will matter. So, what makes an artist statement “good”? Whether you're applying for a residency or grant, or you just want to perfect your elevator pitch, here are a handful of things not to include in your artist statement, plus a few tips to make the process a little less excruciating.
  • EROTIC BY GIOVANI NGNOATTO

    #AnInterview – EROTIC is an ongoing project by artist Giovani Ngnoatto. The body is a constant companion in the various aspects of life, the path to joy, pleasure, sadness and pain. Not just a package, but the wrapping of the soul. It is erotic, it is spiritual and it is beauty. The nude has always been used in an artistic way with the aim of exposing this beauty, from Ancient Greece to modern times, where it became part of the popular expression.
  • Living From Your Art: The Pains And Gains Of Setting Up Your Own Business

    As a start-up, we know how hard it is to set up your own business and keep it running. We also know that it can be extremely rewarding and that it’s definitely worth all the efforts, money and time. While some of our artists cannot (yet) make a living out of their art, others managed to start their own business and live from it. We had an inspiring chat with two of them, trying to understand the key of their success. Whether you’re an artist looking for independence or anyone else interested in understanding the art world a little bit better, you might be grateful for the experience sharing by Mr. Milk and Innerfields.

  • Spotlight on Laura Adams
