Artbox is an artist-led initiative with a singular vision: to support artists to make their best work. Artists take on a lot of risk and, on average, get very little reward. Why? Artists make their art at their own expense with no support, investment or pathways to a professional career. The fact that some of them make it is a miracle. Most don't - and many of those that don't are more talented than the ones that do!
This has to change. How? Artbox supports artists to make work by taking the financial risk out of the system.
We do this via three main pathways:
- Facilitating public art commissions, placemaking and activations with Art Consultancy Services.
- Collective action, including representation on leading platform Artsy and at top Art Fairs.
- Art Club, a subscription service commissioning artists every month.
That's how and why we are improving the art market. Will you join us?
