Meet over lunch: Empowering Artists In The Digital Space with Artfare | A talk with curator Daniela Holban

Virtual Event
Tuesday May 4, 1:00 pm

Watch the recorded talk below.

For this talk, Daniela Holban curator at Artfare, will share how Artfare, an artist-driven social marketplace, and community, allows artists to present their work to a broad audience and connect with patrons both digitally and in-person through studio visits, exhibitions, and events. Artfare allows artists to build a loyal and active base of patron collectors and empowers them to sell their work out of their studio. For collectors, Artfare unlocks access to a carefully curated group of artists, compelling artworks, and unique experiences that facilitate deeper connections with the artwork they purchase. Patrons can follow artists, set up studio visits, meet in person locally and make purchases.

Artfare empowers artists to develop and cultivate patron relationships independently from gallery representation. Artfare also offers educational workshops, curated studio tours, in-person exhibitions, and events. Launched in February 2019, Artfare benefits from a growing board of advisors, currently Phong Bui, Neville Wakefield, and Nicola Vassell. They also work with artist-led spaces, nonprofits, and small galleries and have collaborated with organizations such as BRIC, The Brooklyn Rail, NADA, Tamarind Institute, and Assembly Room.
