Art community SeeMe enters 2019 with a mission to empower artists in their personal expression across a span of social responsibility topics.
Kicking-off this year with an initiative entitled What If We Shared Her Story, SeeMe harnesses the tools of art, marketing leverage, exhibition opportunities and e-commerce to make strides in women’s empowerment.
Last month, SeeMe invited talented feminist artists to submit their work for a chance to be featured in the upcoming What If We Shared Her Story exhibition which will take over the entrance to the New York Affordable Art Fair while upwards of 25,000 prospective buyers file in.
Artists explored the theme of womanhood and the feminist movement as an opportunity to honour Women’s History Month.
From thousands of submitted pieces, a panel of recognized creative professionals selected top pieces to be showcased to the Affordable Art Fair’s audience of art enthusiasts, critics and curators. Of these artists, one lucky grand prize winner will be chosen to receive a special format feature at the fair as well as a $5000 cash award, a solo show in NYC, an artist profile video story to go live on the SeeMe website and further PR and advocacy support.
Beyond the fair display, pieces of selected artists will be available for purchase on the SeeMe Gallery and Artsy platforms. Further initiatives during the Affordable Art Fair will include a panel discussion through which feminist art industry icons such as Jia Jia of Standard Arts, Anita Durst of ChaShaMa and Vanessa Seis of Affordable Art Fair will debate female empowerment through the lens of the art industry.
Since 2012, SeeMe has helped a fleet of artists in a creative league of their own to nurture their careers to full potential. As the leading destination for competitive artists to establish high-level recognition, develop genuine commercial opportunities and connect directly with the art community worldwide, SeeMe is irrevocably committed to breaking barriers within the art world.
This is accomplished with regular talent-spotlighting events at locations such as the Louvre, the White House and Art Basel Miami and online representation – thereby offering artists access to over one million online art enthusiasts and 350k exhibition guests worldwide.
