Graduate Art Rental Programme
WebsEdge were keen house a graduate art programme, in order to create stimulating working areas, as well as supporting artists in their transitional phase from student to professional.
Art Acumen created a framework for a staff led selection process and presented a significant longlist of artist, covering a variety of medium and approach. In order to encourage true freedom in the selection process, it was agreed that the artworks should not be guided by one theme, but instead selected on individual merit. The staff thoroughly enjoyed the experience, as it created new conversation and encouraged friendly debate, but most importantly, it resulted in a vibrant and inspiring environment that they were proud of.
Art Acumen house a database of carefully selected, talented, graduate artists, visiting over 100 degree and MA shows every year in order to bring the best new talent to our clients. We are passionate about giving our artists real opportunities to make a living from their work – before a gallery has signed them up. We offer guidance and practical hands on management.
Many of our clients also choose to invest in graduate artists, and link their art programme to their CSR activities.
