'New' is

Contemporary

Our commitment is to helping the artists of today and tomorrow to push the limits of their practice and go beyond what's come before.

Conceptual

Whether exploring ideas or materials, every project we support has a strong conceptual foundation and is fueled by curiosity.

Collage

A central motif across the artists we work with is recontextualization. More than just a medium, we see collage as a philosophy.

Less Safe,
More New

There’s a special kind of magic that happens when an artist is able to give themselves permission to explore freely. It’s lighter, more playful. It brings out something raw and human and fully uncontrived. The weight of expectations placed on the end-product is lifted, and joy and childlike curiosity take its place.

But that kind of permission can be elusive, regardless of where the artist is at in their career. Whether they have debts to consider, funders to satisfy, or masses to please, there are no shortage of good and valid reasons why people aren’t more adventurous in their practice.

That’s where we step in.

Permission
to Play

Through our grants and collaborations, our goal is to give artists a push to do something fundamentally new that they otherwise wouldn’t have done. Our hope is that our funding and support might be just the thing they need to finally take the first step and venture off into unfamiliar territory where something refreshing and unpredictable might emerge.

The stories of these projects represent one of our most precious assets. Sharing them is the lifeblood of our community. The other is our growing collection, which has been build up exclusively of artifacts contributed by the artists we’ve supported. 

Ultimately, we believe that our work will yield not only more great art, but also more great artists, ones who are unafraid to try something truly different and new.
