PAKS Gallery and MAMAG Museum invite to exhibit at Cannes Film Festival, Art Basel Week and Carrousel du Louvre
I recently received an email from the curator Heinz Playner telling me their curator team was impressed by my work. They sent an invitation and an offer to exhibit my art in 2022 at the MAMAG Modern Art Museum in Austria. Also that the Paks gallery would like to represent me and an offer to participate in the International Fine Biennale Basel, ART BASEL ART WEEK IN 2023, ALSO THE CANNES fILM fESTIVAL, and also in the Carrousel du Louvre. Has anyone been involved with the PAKS Gallery in Vienna or the MAMAG Museum with such an offer? What was your experience? Is this a good oportunity. There are fees involved to participate at these events but the gallery would be responsible for transporting them to these sites and back to Paks gallery with a years representation. The Museum would only take 20% commision on paintings sold and the artist gets 80%.
I used to get those mails on a regular basis. Very expensive + you have to pay almost a year in advance. Plus the arts that I saw on their portfolios and pictures looked quite amateurish. It looks to me that anyone who can afford to pay in order to call himself an “artists” can go there. Money talks and….walks. Doesn’t look like anyone curates, as long as you can pay…
I have also received the same email from Paks with the same offer. They send me one every year. I have not her participated as it’s expensive. I noticed their Instagram page @paksgallery does not highlight any sales or much engagement and work of low quality like Faeries and pixies.
