Get to Know Us

Founded by art collectors Alex Mitow and James Miille, Superfine! started out in 2015 as an alternative to boring, stuffy art shows and complicated art world politics. From the start, we caught flack from the art establishment when we broke down barriers and opened the gates to everyone from serious long-time art collectors to people who just love art and never thought they’d collect.

As it turned out, nobody cared about the art world and their politics. Our open and transparent approach worked: imaginations have been sparked and countless new collections have been jump-started at Superfine! fairs as we continue to spread our message of a more inclusive art market across the country. Since 2015, we’ve had one goal: produce badass, expertly curated art shows where über-talented, diverse global artists meet their new fans in iconic locations across the US and beyond.

AADK Spain Open Call 2019: Landscape

Share

Category:

Country:

AADK Spain invites all artists and researchers who wish to work on the topics of body, territory and spatiality to participate in its Artistic Residency Program. For this call, projects that respond to  the landscape will be prioritised. The Programme is carried out in Centro Negra, current headquarters of AADK Spain, located in the town of Blanca, Murcia. It is conceived of as a space for reflection and creative research that encourages its participants to interweave their projects with the historical, cultural and geographical context of the region. 

AADK advocates for the decentralisation of culture and access to contemporary art in non-urban areas. It addresses local issues as a means to understand global problems. Currently based in Centro Negra (Blanca, Murcia) AADK Spain holds several programmes among which its Artistic Residency Program is foremost. Deeply rooted in its context, this programme constitutes a framework for research and debate where knowledge exchange and creative collaboration are always encouraged. Throughout the year the platform also holds a wide variety of activities, workshops and events. Furthermore, AADK Spain creates networks with other cultural and artistic enterprises in order to facilitate mobility for the artists that it hosts and foster their work at a national and international level.

At Centro Negra you will find support at every level of your project from AADK. The conditions of the stay and the access to equipment and materials can be discussed individually either remotely or during your stay. AADK Spain invests 850€ (a 60%) per resident in the residency program, and the Municipality of Blanca supports with the accommodation. The artists need to cover:

650€ per month (40% of total costs). If the resident works collectively there is an extra cost of 100€ per month per person, only if working on the same project, and sharing the studio and accommodation.

The 2019 Christenberry Scholarship

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The late William Christenberry was best known for his evocative photographs, collages, assemblages, paintings, drawings, and sculptures of his birthplace, Hale County, Alabama, and for his haunting vision of the American South.  As a teacher and mentor to hundreds of students at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, DC he was a guiding force for aspiring artists.

To honor his legacy, Washington, DC’s Studio Gallery is offering The Christenberry Fellowship.  Through it, local emerging artists gain their first entry to a professional gallery, where they can join a broad and diverse artistic community and display and market their work alongside that of established artists.

A grant underwriting this fellowship worth $1,000 annually was made possible by Jeff Mace.  It enables the selected fellow to join the artist-run, cooperative for one year (with renewal possibility), without having to pay the normal fellowship member fee and to skip the normal jurying process for Studio Gallery membership.

The goal is to expose new artists to the greater Washington, DC art world and to increase their professional skills by displaying their works within a gallery setting.  Local emerging artists learn to: create a cohesive body of work, refine it with a curator, optimize its exhibition design and lighting selections, and maximize its potential for purchase through marketing,  promotion, and sales techniques.  In addition, by joining an artist-run gallery, they meet and interact with a cross-section of working Washington artists for informal networking and mentoring.
