“COMPANY believes that supporting the next generation of art instigators is an obligation to our creative futures.”
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 14, 2011
COMPANY called upon their extensive network of art collectors and creative professionals to recommend talented candidates under forty years old for this notable feature. Efforts started months ago with the consideration of more than 100 people from around the world. After lengthy debate, 30 individuals were selected, representing the best cross-section of influencers involved in and supporting emerging art. COMPANY’s 30 UNDER 40 EMERGING ART MAVENS is comprised of the following: 13 emerging artists; 4 curators; 3 art dealers/gallerists; 3 art advisors, 3 collectors; 3 art bloggers and 1 creative media consultant. From equally diverse array of backgrounds representing nine countries and twice as many cities, the feature captures a snapshot of who to watch beyond the art world’s center stage.
The timing of the list’s publication is not accidental to coincide with the opening of ArtBasel and the Venice Biennale., according to publisher CJ Follini: “While everyone flocks to Basel to see who is buying what and for how much, we wanted to help collectors discover the creative talent that exists where artists live in places like Bushwick, Koreatown, Yerba Buena, London’s Shoreditch and Chicago’s Arts District.”
COMPANY plans to publish the list annually and hopes the distinction brings public awareness to the respective contributions each honoree makes within the art community. “We believe supporting the next generation of art instigators is an obligation to our creative futures.”
