ARTIST IN THE MARKETPLACE

The Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program, now in its 37th year, provides professional development opportunities to emerging artists residing in the New York metropolitan area. The program consists of a series of 15 seminars that address the practical concerns of establishing a sustainable artistic practice. Topics covered include: Writing, Fundraising, Art Law, Art Criticism, Marketing, Financial Planning, and Career Management, among others. The program culminates in a public exhibition featuring works by participating artists.

 

Every year a panel of arts professionals selects thirty-six artists to participate in the AIM program. AIM sessions are led by a faculty of specialists, including: Yona Backer (Third Streaming Media), Vrinda Condillac (Barnard College/Cooper Union), Maryanna McConnell (Morgan Stanley), Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento (Art+Law Program), Melissa Rachleff (NYU), Lauren Wittels (Luhring Augustine), and Jeffrey Walkowiak (UNTITLED). An Art Critic-in-Residence serves as a faculty member on a biyearly basis: Brian Boucher (Artnet News, 2016-2017), Eleanor Heartney (Art in America, 2014- 2015), Joseph R. Wolin (ArtNews, 2012- 2013), and Christian Viveros-Fauné (Artnet News, 2010- 2011).

 

AIM sessions are primarily held at the Bronx Museum of the Arts on Tuesdays from 6-8pm and occasional Saturdays.
