Helping artists gain exposure during art fairs, We show artists’ works on our Art Display outside art fairs. We hope to include as many artists as possible to help them gain exposure before the eyes of art collectors, art experts and art lovers attending the art fairs. Our display is placed feet away from the entrance to art fairs. ** We don’t take commissions on any sales generated by the art display. No works need to be shipped as images and artists’ name and Instagram contact is displayed along with images of works. There is a submission fee of $55 and a participation fee if selected. We want to offer an opportunity to all artists who may not be available or cannot travel to show their work, thus this is open to artists from around the world. This is also a good option for artists who cannot access the high fees and commission fees as well as shipping expenses that are associated with art fairs and art exhibits.

During Soviet times, arts and culture were promoted, financed and used by the state and the communist party as an instrument to underpin the state, their party values and ideology. Cultural content had to align with ideological propaganda and be broadly understood by the general public. It also had to instill into people a feeling of being a part of the USSR family alongside its objectives and achievements. With the collapse of the Soviet Union and the concomitant economic dip and scarcity of state resources in the newly independent Kyrgyz Republic, the arts and culture community and Kyrgyz Union of Artists not only lost its financing but more importantly its role in society and the state. Twenty years after independence, like other newly independent states, the multi-ethnic Kyrgyz Republic is still struggling with a new national identity appealing to all constituent parts of the country. There is also a lack of understanding of citizen responsibility in a pluralistic market economy. Б’Art Contemporary was founded in 2007 by Shaarbek Amankul as an artistic research project and mobile art practice aimed at developing and promoting contemporary art in Kyrgyzstan as an alternative to the traditional view of and approach to art. VISION: […]

We approach collective creativity as mode of encouraging dialogue and triggering stimulating ideas on the critique and collapse of borders between Art’s disciplines. Our team is formed by permanent and guest artists and other curious people from various places and spaces. Our journey began in a nomadic manner with an emphasis on site specific shows. Today ERGO occupies a physical space in Athens making its first steps as an artist-run-space. Our new space allows the collective to be more spontaneous on realizing projects, ideas and activities. To have a home, means to be a host and therefore ERGO is welcoming creatives from around the world to share and propose ideas on exhibitions, performances, workshops, symposia, screenings or any other intriguing event.

Yessíca still owns H Gallery, which is now one of the most prevailing contemporary art spaces in the greater Los Angeles area.

Tangent Projects is a curatorial initiative set up to work with national and international emerging and mid-career artists on site responsive exhibitions and projects. With a desire to add multiplicity to the current art archetype, Tangent Projects endeavors to showcase exemplary works in a variety of different media and platforms – including books, exhibitions, performance and online commissions. Our intent is to invite artists to explore “tangents” or diversions within their practice. In offering the opportunity for digressions to be pursued, ideas and processes that might normally have been discarded in favor of the main discourse will have the potential to reach a conclusion. Without a commercial bias and with experimentation encouraged, Tangent Projects proposes the prospect for artists to develop the deviations within their artistic dialogue. In simple terms, to give artists the leeway to “go off on a tangent”. In early 2019 there were some big changes, Tangent Projects became a cultural association and rented an old garage in the Santa Eulalia area of L’Hospitalet del Llobregat, We then spent the following few months setting up a small artist driven space with the remit of not only offering an exhibition space for artists to experiment with their practice […]

The Concern Newsstand has such a name because of a concern that the world is falling to distracted mindlessness and that we’re all reading from physical, paper objects less and less. A ‘concern’ is also the name of a ‘business’. The Chapel Hill / Carrboro, NC area no longer has m/any used book or magazine stores. The Newsstand is offering this service to the community. It is also a venue for local artists & artists from beyond to sell their printed materials & limited edition products. Housed in a gallery & among artist studios, it is a meeting spot & hang out place. The curated focus is to expand one’s mind in some way beyond the mundane via artist books, comics, art books, magazines, small press publishers, used books, vintage magazines & more. The curator & artist behind this project is Orvokki Crosby. The Concern has a long-term outpost at Lump Gallery (505 S. Blount Street, Raleigh, NC 27601) where materials can be browsed and purchases can be made during gallery hours (Thu- Sat, 12-6pm) AND a showroom/ reading room/ workshop at Attic 506 (506A W.

Overnight Projects is an artist-run, curatorial concept steered by artists and creative practitioners whose work shows critical observation and purpose. We consider projects with artists a partnership of shared labor, driven by curiosity, experimentation, and a commitment to connection and conversation. Founded in 2015 and directed by Abbey Meaker with support from Meara McGinniss, Rachel Jones, and a small group of invaluable volunteers, we organize experiential installations and idea-driven artworks and events in revolving locations, including transitional spaces and traditional gallery settings. Notable past sites include an 1800s orphanage, a defunct coal-plant, a 1950s lakeside motel, and a cornfield on the cusp of reverting back to a wetland. Art is one of few remaining platforms where critical engagement can take place and (hopefully) shift perception and action in meaningful ways. The unique and inventive expression of ideas through art offers a chance and hope for a more inclusive, compassionate, and intelligent world. That is what we are continually working for.
