Art Represent is the only platform dedicated to the creative & economic empowerment of artists who are affected by conflict and social upheaval. Our aim is to provide a platform for the self-representation of artists who are affected by systematic and violent oppression world-wide, challenging the prevailing narrative of conflict regions that has been shaped by popular media. We choose our artists on the merit of their work, rather than defining them as “conflict artists” and fetishising their personal experiences. We connect our artists to an international audience and network of collectors through our online commercial platform, providing them with an infrastructure to develop their artistic careers. We are also building a strong curatorial programme, including exhibitions, creative projects and events. Funded through our online commercial platform, our curatorial programme allows us to put creative practice at the heart. Working closely with the artists, we support them at every stage from initial concept to completion.
