Behind the CV: Workshop
April 12, 2022 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm| Free – $75
This is a sliding-scale virtual workshop. Workshops are intended to prioritize students and emerging artists/educators.
This conversational workshop will offer practical approaches to drafting, organizing, and maintaining an institutional CV. We’ll also discuss the creative possibilities that can open up when considering the CV as a form itself and a container for new narratives. Bring your questions, concerns, and a current draft/iteration of your CV (optional!).
Spots are very limited, so reserve your space now!
About The Series
This workshop is a part of Behind the Curtain, a topical virtual program series that aims to demystify the varied institutions that artists have to navigate. This month’s series focuses on the academic teaching and hiring process.
It’s no secret that applying to teaching positions in academia is confusing, exhausting, and time consuming for artists. What are panelists looking for? What makes a strong artist statement or teaching portfolio? More often than not, it’s a trial and error process for recent graduates and new educators that feels equal parts mystifying and frustrating.
The series will kick off with a free virtual panel discussion about the current challenges and realities of academia for artists as we talk to Breanne Trammell, Abigail Lucien, Nicole Killian, and Hồng-Ân Trương who are educators + artists in varying stages of their professional practices and teaching careers.
Breanne Trammell is an artist currently living at the intersection of The and Moon. Her work evolves out of the daily practice of looking, learning, zoning out, and being extremely local. She lovingly clowns around, riffing and bootlegging language and form to situate everyday life, feelings, and emotions as material for her work. Recent and past projects include adopting a highway in Iowa, touring the U.S. performing free manicures, reading a CV on the radio, mowing the grass, and performing soft comedy. Breanne received her MFA in printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design and was the 2014 WSW Ora Schneider Artist-in-Residence.
