A new wave of new labels has emerged to support new artists, with the launch of the Mickey Art exhibition in New York.
Art exhibitions have become increasingly popular in the last decade, with many labels supporting a range of new artists and labels including Lulu, Freetown, and the forthcoming Artisan Collective, as well as an emerging scene of independent label labels such as The Black Collective.
But there’s a new breed of artists who are taking advantage of this boom, with labels such like Artisan and Artisan Collection taking a much more direct approach to their art.
The Artisan Gallery label has been working on the first Artisan collection of art in more than a decade, and will debut in January 2018.
Its art, which will be exhibited in London, is part of the Artisan brand.
Artisan is the label behind the recent “Mickey” Art exhibition at the Tate Modern, which opened in February and attracted more than 3,000 artists and other curators to London.
Artisan has also worked with the likes of Kanye West and Paul McCartney to promote the exhibition, which also features works by the likes: Lorde, John Legend, Johnathan Williams, Jamiroquai, Mura Masa, and many more.
The exhibition will feature works by artists including Luka Kovalic, Joanne Harris, and David Byrne.
Artisans Collective is also expanding its portfolio, including the release of works by artist-director John Gaskin, whose “A Clockwork Orange” film and the film adaptation of his book are set to be screened at the exhibition.
The collective’s founder, Alex Bowers, told Polygon that the collective is proud to work with the Mickeys collection, adding that the collaboration with Artisan was meant to support artists who have chosen to work on their own, as opposed to being supported by established labels.
“It’s a really exciting time,” he said.
“It’s really good to be part of something that is pushing boundaries and it’s a good opportunity for artists to do that.”
The Artisans Collective’s mission is to inspire artists to break down barriers and work on projects that are their own.
There are a lot of artists working on their ideas right now.
Artists can’t do it if they’re not working on it themselves.
“It’s not the first time a Mickey exhibition has appeared at the British Museum.
In May 2017, a series of new exhibitions were announced to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Mickey Mouse film, with a number of artists participating.
The exhibition featured a number by artists such as Sarah Lipscomb, Sarah Smeaton, and Nick Hornby, as did a series that followed the work of artists such the New York based artist Daryush Valizadeh.
The launch of Artisan Art Gallery in New Zealand, which includes works by Nick Hornbrough, is expected to take place in 2018.
