Basic Structure of a Portfolio Review:

- Show 1-2 bodies of concisely edited, precisely presented work
- Come prepared with relevant questions for the reviewers
- See if the reviewer is open to a continued dialogue
- Leave behind something by which they will remember you
The Cocktail Statement Should:

- Provide a concise point of departure for the follow-up conversation
Statement should address:
- The kind of work you make (fine art, commercial, editorial, etc)
- The ideas/themes/subjects that are reoccurring in your work
- Technical strengths, historical foundation, political motivations, aesthetic

- Show 10-20 images for each project. Keep a B folder with the 2nd best images.
Sometimes reviewers want to see what else you have
- Edit down each series to include only the very best images
- Start with your strongest work
- Give an introductory statement to contextualize the work

- Know what they do, where they work and the kind of work that interests
- Read the bios provided and then research them online to see what their
institution does
