Your credentials mean nothing to me. Billy Childish
Instead of relying on their gut, often gallery proprietors, curators, and academia favor the CV as a means to justify exhibition scheduling and hiring practices. It is as if they are afraid to trust their own judgment or are afraid to take a risk on somebody they have never heard of.
For me, the work is everything. I couldn’t give a damn about a CV or exhibition history. In fact, with the kind of work a lot of art institutions favor these days, I might even question a lengthy CV and exhibition history. Yes indeed, your credentials mean nothing to me.
