Members event (Roy Voss in Conversation at Matt's Gallery) 2008
The Artist Membership is designed to bring artists closer to the mission of the Contemporary Art Society.
For 100 years the Contemporary Art Society has been acquiring works from artists and distributing them to museums and public galleries where they are enjoyed by a large and diverse audience. We also work in diverse ways with artists and their galleries through our programmes for our members and supporters, curators and arts professional, and our arts consultancy services. Launched in 2009, Artist Membership of the Contemporary Art Society is by invitation to those artists with whom we have worked in our various programmes.
The aim of the membership is to:
Provide greater visibility for artists and their work, particularly those who do not already have gallery representation.
Bring artists closer to the opportunities and challenges that public collections can offer.
Bring audiences, including collectors, closer to the work of artists.
Artist Members can attend Contemporary Art Society events including display previews, talks and seminars and have an online profile.
Artist Members also benefit from being showcased in the PROJECT space at the Contemporary Art Society, 59 Central Street, London EC1 in displays selected by the Society’s network of private collectors and curators.
Annual Artist Membership costs just £25 to cover website administration.
