A reader posted “I’ve been contacted by the European Cultural Center/ Global Art Foundation to exhibit during Venice Biennale. They asked for a big “sponsorship” for wall space.
The place they exhibit at seemed great (I’m Italian and know Venice quite well) and the list of their sponsors too. I was in doubt wether to search for sponsorship to afford exhibiting with them but I thought I might as well ask first. I’m very new to the art world, maybe other artists have had experience with them.
Thank you so much”
Any other feedback?
A reader posted “I would consider adding an entry for It’s Liquid Group run by Luca Curci. Mr Curci would typically put out open calls to artists exhibit works as part of a festival with no mention of a entry/ submission or participation fee. Artists would send work to be considered for inclusion and they would often receive a response from Mr Curci, asking for a fee ranging from €50 to €200 (sometimes even more) for each work that has been submitted. Such fees are never mentioned in the original open call.
I have included some links below which go into detail about these so-called ‘opportunities’:

Lowe’s Gallery in Atlanta (run by Bill Lowe) is notorious for not paying artists . They were even raided by Police for this in 2015 and have also been sued numerous times by artists whose work they sold and yet didn’t pay. Incredibly, they are still in business…

97 Allen Street, New York, NY 10002
Had a piece in a show back in 2013 and the Gallery purchased it but never sent me a payment.
Had many emails back and forth and had to go into the gallery multiple times asking for a status of my check but everyone claimed not to know anything about it or why the payment is missing.
The gallery has had a reputation in the past for stiffing upcoming artists.
