Paying artists campaign

a-n The Artists Information Company has launched a campaign to try to ensure that projects involving public funding pay artists for their contribution. Based on the findings of its recent survey into payment of visual artists, the organisation has calculated that over the past three years, 70% of artists exhibiting in publicly funded galleries received no fee and nearly 60% were not paid expenses. The campaign is designed to challenge creeping trends of low or non pay for visual artists and the consequent threat to the diversity of the arts sector.
