Primarily, ARTmART participants are chosen by our multipli‐curators principle: Our aim is to showcase the wide span of fine art. That is why we invite curators from various segments of the contemporary Austrian art scene (institutions, artist-run-spaces, freelancing curators, or professors in art-universities) to each nominate three artists they find interesting.
Additionally we always reserve a few participation-slots and make them available to free applications. We will keep on providing this option for artistic positions (roughly 15), which we find exciting (conscious that with any given pool of multipli-curators our reach can never cover all facets and niches of relevant art production).
An essential part of the participants (around 30%) comes from our international networks (self-organized by artist(groups) or curators). That allows for very lively exchange and networking on an international scale amongst the artists.
