RICE InitiativeRICE is a Reversing Initiative to Counter the Exclusion of females and other discriminated groups in the art world.
Created in Barcelona, RICE is a Reversing Initiative to Counter the Exclusion of females and other discriminated groups in the art world. As an independent curatorial platform, our mission is to bring visibility and promote the sale of fresh and unique artworks by emerging and mid-career artists from around the world. Yes, we favor female-identifying artists and artists pertaining to other discriminated groups but we do not exclude male artists, especially those living in situations of marginalization or discrimination. Our goal is to reverse the current state of favoritism towards the traditionally privileged in mainstream contemporary art, by exercising positive discrimination while still leaving room for male artists and curators to be a part of this initiative. To that end, we launch quarterly open calls to discover artist to be featured in our art magazine and in the exhibitions we organize at established galleries across Europe.
