The pop up culture expands networking platforms, enabling artists to get more exposure through flash exhibitions at unique and diverse venues.

Our gallery’s purpose is to recruit emerging and non-commercial artists and find ways to expose their work to new audiences through the network of the selected venues. Pop ups eliminate the regular gallery set up making artwork more accessible and immediate. Buyers will be able to “walk away” with the work they have purchased.

Venues hosting popupart are encouraged to leverage off the exhibition by using it as an attraction or a marketing tool to draw more media coverage and extended patronage to their site.

We would like to see pop up’s benefit artists as well as the hosting venue while bringing accessible art to a new and larger audience..
