Collectives and Artist Led Projects: Artist-Created Exhibitions and Events

Individually, many artists work alone to build connections, buyers and collectors. Some artists work with us and use our artist submission services to get news of their available work out to collectors, galleries, and art consultants. Other artists create or join artist collectives for professional reasons, such as to share costs of publicity, exhibition spaces, and to develop a higher group profile.

There is an amazing creative variety in the ways members of various collectives come together to host projects, exhibitions, workshops and events.

The New York based Kolektiv1 art group sells tickets to one night wine, jazz, art, and dancing events to raise awareness and support for kolektiv1’s artists and their spring art shows.

Something Different Art Collective allows you to sign up to receive invitations to their party events.

Kollektiv Gallery not only curates and exhibits art, but instructs artists in the world of Crowdfunding and selling art. Collective Gallery uses Kickstarter to teach new artists how to fund a project. Their Fast Art workshop instructs artists in using empty spaces and making a project happen on any budget.

The Animamus Art Salon, created by the artist Ventiko, puts on such amazing group artist performances that their shows garnered them a feature in Interview Magazine, which you can read here.   Both the Animamus Art Salon and VERB Projects are about art in action and the act of making and participating. The VERB Projects artist led exhibitions and events offer an alternative approach within the contemporary art scene.  Artists spend time in a space creating new art specifically for Verb Projects.  Value is placed upon the artist’s engagement through working with a range of art and non-art sites, the dialogue between art object, the site and the role of the audience in it. Photos on their 12HRS tumblr blog and Up on the 5th floor  and C-PAGES blog document activities in their free pop-up event spaces where artists showcase their work.

The Vox Populi artist run space in Philadelphia, which was founded in 1988, is an artist collective that seeks to support challenging and experimental work of under-represented artists. Vox Populi’s monthly exhibition schedule includes solo shows of members and guest artists, a curated video lounge, annual guest-curated shows and group shows that provide exposure for emerging artists.

Salon-Style Wall-Hang VS Salon-Style Contemporary Art Gallery

Apartment Therapy salon style room

Apartment Therapy salon style room

According to an article on the Urban Domesticity blog, “hanging artwork salon-style entails arranging a whole bunch of pictures and paintings together in a collage-like formation on the wall.”

This “old-fashioned” method of hanging art dates back to The Paris Salon (French: Salon de Paris), the official art exhibition of the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France. Between 1748 and 1890 The Paris Salon was the greatest annual or biannual art event in the Western world according to Wikipedia.

While this salon-style of hanging art has made a comeback with Interior Designers, which is good news for artists who will be able to offer even more artworks to residential clients to fill salon-hung walls, the term “salon style” may refer to location and relaxed atmosphere when it comes to contemporary art galleries.

Susan Eley Fine Art was founded as a salon-style gallery in an Upper West Side Townhouse in Manhattan, New York, to offer an intimate, personal viewing experience not typically found in white box galleries. Eley opened her Gallery to tap into an untapped audience and to show them an alternative way to enjoy art. She focuses on contemporary art by emerging and mid-career artists working in both figurative and abstract styles in a variety of media and presents their work in solo and group exhibitions showcasing artists from the U.S., Asia, Latin America and Europe.

Artist Marketing Resources has been researching art galleries for many years, and offers artists a chance to share at that research by purchasing the International Art Gallery Directory here.
