For Subscribers and readers

As founder and solo contributor to this blog, expanding is a constant consideration. Very recently I submitted an application with a large design firm for Pro Bono redesign of this site. Also,upon invitation I started an Affinity group at Idealist.org, where I have also posted a request for an intern and content contributors.

I plan to begin featuring exhibition news from my blog subscribers. All blog subscribers, and those interested in the content of this blog, are welcome to submit news, links, ideas, suggestion or comments to me for consideration–   via email to: mariekazzaz@embarqmail.com

Within the next few days I will begin a weekly update of my Kickstarter project, which will continue for 4 more weeks. The information should be relevant and beneficial to the artist readers of this blog who may also be seeking funding and increased networking opportunities.

If you have benefited from the content of Artist Marketing Resources blog I ask that you also support my Kickstarter project by contributing $1. or more.

Here is the project link–

Sharing this link on Twitter, Facebook, Digg, etc will help too.

Best wishes for a productive day!

Tate Modern: another artist accepted

Another satisfied artist who subscribes to this blog to receive email updates of new posts, writes:

Dear Marie,

Thanks to your emails I got to know about the possibility of getting my work exhibited at the Tate Modern through the Museum of Everything. I went there and my drawing got selected. The experience of having my drawing shown at the Tate is mind-blowing.

On the other hand, I work for a collective of artists in London and we have uncurated exhibitions three times a year. I could send you the information. The web is

Carmen Li

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Carmen experienced an interesting mix of Chinese tradition and colonial influence. After her 1992 graduation from the Swire School of Design of Hong Kong Polytechnic University, she became very active in design circles while working in several established Hong Kong studios. In 1996, just before the handover of Hong Kong to the Chinese government, Carmen arrived in New York City with two suitcases and her portfolio. In 2004 Carmen set up Creasia Design, incorporating her unique international sensibility into her own design language. Art remains her raison d’être however, and she continues to challenge commonplace perceptions of what art is Although New York is now her adopted home, Carmen frequently travels to London, Tokyo, Singapore and Hong Kong, where she actively seeks new material for her work, with inspiration coming in equal measures from the Royal Academy of Arts and the streets of Dai Pai Dong or Asakusa.

International Contemporary Art Fair Exclusively Online

The conventional art fair — for which collectors, dealers and other art-world professionals jet into a city for several days of looking, buying, partying and networking — is about to face a challenge. The online-only VIP Art Fair, which will take place for the first time in January, is similarly time-limited (at a week long), but different in almost every other way from a normal fair. The “booths” are virtual; conversation (and haggling over prices) will take place by instant messaging, phone or Skype; and no one will get sore feet. The event is the brainchild of two couples, the art dealers James and Jane Cohan and the Internet entrepreneurs Jonas and Alessandra Almgren, who are neighbors and friends in Park Slope.

So far several major galleries have signed up, including Gagosian, David Zwirner, White Cube, Hauser & Wirth and L&M Arts. The cost to galleries in the most elite category is $20,000, which Mr. Cohan said the founders estimated to be about a fifth of the cost of doing a conventional art fair (including booth, transportation, hotels and shipping). Asked whether people would be willing to spend money on art they hadn’t seen in person, Mr. Cohan said that buyers most likely would be people already familiar with a given artist’s work. For other visitors, he added, the fair would be more about education and making initial contacts with dealers. The fair will take place from Jan. 22-30. Anyone can browse, but to interact with dealers, you will have to be invited by one of the exhibiting galleries or pay a fee. (source: NY TImes, Art Beat article)

Linked to AMP Art Org Worldwide

Dear Marie,

thanks for connecting with us.

I’ve linked you on AMP’s Art Blogs page: http://www.pluginamp.com/network/node/12601

I see that you’ve linked AMP a couple of times on your blog, which is great!  However, I don’t think of AMP as a place for Calls to Submit, though those do show up.  AMP is primarily a way for artists worldwide to connect with each other, so they can help each other find the resources they need (thus the name – Artists’ Meeting Place and Resource Collective).  There are now about 4,000 members in 86 countries (the latest country to join is Swaziland – which was exciting).  Any member is free to post, and this is where Calls for Submissions show up, but also member art, announcements, blogs, music, and so on.  Browse through and I think you’ll see what I mean.  There are also worldwide listings of “real” (physical) art resources and organizations.  However, the biggest strength of AMP is that once members login, they can contact other members anywhere in the world.

That considered, probably the best place for AMP on your website is Art Orgs.

best,
Terri
