The Artist Resume and CV
Artists, however, need several versions of their background and work history, depending on the audience and context. It's designed to impress others in the art world, especially those who can help you secure funding or a spot in a public showing. A bio, on the other hand, is written for the public and is used when your work appears in an exhibition, a juried competition or a publication.
When I read many artist bios in galleries they just seem like lists, and often padded lists when I stop to read them. Doesn't a gallery really want to know what your work looks like? Or is it that important to them that another gallery likes you, too Seriously, do gallery directors really read all the BS that goes into artist statements and bios or do they look at the work first and foremost? I think most gallery directors look at the work first.
