Critical Analysis


If an art institution contacts you, ask any if there is an artist fee before agreeing to participate. When contracted by a non-profit arts organization you are considered an outside vendor/contractor serving as an educator/content provider. Remember that an artist fee or honorarium is distinctly separate from negotiations regarding production, travel, shipping and material expenses. Not asking allows inequity and unethical behavior to flourish. Promote peer-to-peer transpancy: If it’s a group show, find out who the other artists are or contact people who have worked with that institution and inquire as to how or what their negotiations were; likewise, if you’re contacted by a cultural-producing colleague or peer with questions regarding payment and negotiations, be open, honest and transparent. The old adage that ‘knowledge is power’ is the truth, and the more we support each other, the stronger our community will be. Solidarity, not competition, are the building blocks of strength, equity and empowerment.
