General Tips for All Exhibitions
Writing Your Description on Why Your Piece is Experimental to You
ISEA Member, Renee Kahn, provides helpful tips on who reads your statement, what they want to know about your experimental piece, and provides a few examples of some submissions with short, succinct explanations that are effective.
These statements are used to further ISEA aims of educating the public about the nature of experimental art, and enhancing how experimental artists are valued in their communities. As a reminder, there is a 1000 character count for these statements. Characters are each letter, number, punctuation, and space in your statement. Strive for 3 to 4 sentences.
