The Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program, now moving into its 38th year, provides professional development opportunities to emerging artists residing in the New York metropolitan area. Modeled as an artist fellowship program, AIM consists of a series of 15 seminars that address the practical concerns of establishing a sustainable artistic practice in today’s competitive art market, including:
Writing / Fundraising / Art Law / Art Criticism / Marketing / Financial Planning / Career Management
Beyond professional development, AIM offers artists the opportunity to cultivate peer and professional networks through its collaborative learning structure and culminates in a public exhibition featuring works by participating artists.
A panel of arts professionals selects thirty-six artists to participate in the AIM program. AIM sessions are led by a faculty of specialists, including: Yona Backer (Third Streaming Media), Brian Boucher (artnet News), Maryanna McConnell (Morgan Stanley), Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento (Art+Law Program), Melissa Rachleff (NYU), Lauren Wittels (Luhring Augustine), and Jeffrey Walkowiak (UNTITLED).
Graduates of the AIM program include: Njideka Akunyili-Crosby, Polly Apfelbaum, LaToya Ruby Fraiser, Pablo Helguera, Byron Kim, Glenn Ligon, Sarah Oppenheimer, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Anton Vidokle, among many others. Artists of all disciplines are welcome to apply.
AIM sessions are primarily held at the Bronx Museum of the Arts on Tuesdays from 6- 8pm and occasional Saturdays. AIM 38 is slated to begin in January 2018 with Session I taking place January–April and Session II held May–August.
