How do I become a curated Artist?
We believe in the capacity for us to lift each other, so peer-to-peer review is a crucial and defining aspect of Fair Art Fair. We also know Art Lovers often need guidance to find the works they want to buy. We have advisory board of curators and guest selectors engaged already and this is a aspect of Fair Art Fair that will improve and grow. We look forward to peer to peer lifting through our liking metrics so stay tuned and stay engaged. We promise to respond to the needs of the community with curators for digital selections as well as in real life exhibitions. Our community of professional Artists have established reputations and experience that enables us to vet and select newcomer Artists into the group, providing them with even more opportunities.
To be considered you just subscribe, when you subscribe you get competitively priced professional tools, unlimited uploads - auto populating documentation (unique to FAF), ability to communicate with fellow artists on the platform and gain support and advise through the Helpful Matrix.
Fair Art Fair is creating a New World of Art. A platform of discovery and connection with industry and peer to peer validation. We are an App of integrity based on 11 years of Gallery/Residencies supporting over 400 artists with space and time to grow their practices, be supported and mentored and benefit from our wide and respected network. We have an established reputation for curating and selecting artists of excellence and many have gone on the museum collections and curation. We know our curation and selection process is crucial for the App and we have launched it to do many things and create benefits for many more artists than our IRL space is limited to.
We developed two arenas for Art Lovers to search for works to collect. Curated arena is for artists that have been curated by the directors or by guest curators/selectors and the Total Discovery mode where newcomer artists are initially visible. It is here that you will have the continuing opportunity to sell your work and be selected, promoted and placed in exhibitions and have your profile visible. As New York Times said “this app’s success will rely on good curation” and this is our plan.
We truly are endeavour to re-invent the art world and allow artists full agency over their practices and meet interested curators and art lovers directly and this is an ambitious but achievable goal and requires transparency and integrity.
I’m a curator, can I bring my Artists onto the platform?
