Foundwork — the new online platform designed to help connect artists with curators, gallerists, and other collaborators across the global art community — is now featuring artists from graduate and undergraduate studio art programs worldwide, including both students and alumni from any class year. The site opened in November, 2017 to artists from US MFA programs, and there are now artists from over 100 schools in the US and abroad participating.
Foundwork provides a focused, noise-free venue for artists to share their work with a relevant international audience — and for curators, gallerists, and others to research and engage with participating artists wherever they’re located. Artists manage their own profiles and can share their CV, an artist statement, and unlimited work — and the site is searchable across a range of key criteria including school, degree type, class year, artist location, artwork format, and descriptive attributes which artists assign themselves, informing their context on the platform.
Foundwork is free for art students, and artist alumni can create their profiles for a $4/monthly subscription.
Foundwork is run by Adam Yokell, a former Brooklyn gallerist and art lawyer, and has as its advisors Helen Toomer, Manuela Paz, Dewitt Godfrey, and Tod Lippy. The platform is about to start an ongoing project, Foundwork Guest Selections, where leading practitioners from across the field are invited to spotlight artists from the website. Foundwork’s advisors will be the first to participate.
