I was wondering if anyone has ever seen a specific path that the majority of artists who end up showing at such prestigious shows as the Whitney Biennial have taken?
Do the majority of them have an MFA from CalArts, or are they all represented by major international galleries, etc. I know it's a stupid question. As I'm sure all of their paths were different. But there must be some direction or advice on the matter.
I'm really just trying to figure out how to get where I want to go in this over-complicated art world. There doesn't seem to be any specific guide book. Any advice on the matter would be appreciated as I'm sure we all agree showing at the Whitney might as well be the height of one's career. Or maybe that's just how it seems to someone who's still showing at emerging venues.
