VIP MFA Art Fair is a juried online contemporary art fair conceived to support and champion artists’ first steps into the market through a seven-day web event using the innovative platform of VIP Art Fair, the first-ever exclusively online art fair. A panel of 6 judges will select 200 artists from a pool of nominations and open call applicants.
From June 1st to June 8th VIP MFA will be live to the international art community. Collectors, curators, institutions, art critics and dealers will converge at www.vipartfair.com to support and acquire work by the most promising students from renowned MFA (and equivalent) programs. Selected artists will bring 5-10 works to the fair, along with an artist’s statement, descriptions of each work and a behind the scenes video (optional). The works will be for sale through the VIP Art Fair e-commerce platform.
This unique project will benefit from VIP Art Fair’s extensive network of collectors and dealers. 73,000 registrants from 155 countries will be invited to login to VIP MFA art fair along with over 200 top dealers.
VIP MFA will award three prizes ($7,500 for the 1st prize, $5,000 for the 2nd and $2,500 for the 3rd prize) to outstanding artists participating in our program and their institution.
A panel of world recognized jurors will select 200 artists from a pool of nominations and open call applications from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 graduate classes. The judge’s panel includes:
Diana Al-Hadid, artist represented by Marianne Boesky and MFA sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University.
