Company introduction

A WORLD WHERE A NEW GENERATION OF PATRONS AND COLLECTORS SHAPES THE FUTURE OF ART AND DESIGN.

The journey of art:i:curate began in 2012, when long time friends Nur El Shami and Irina Turcan, both working in different industries at the time, decided to join forces and pursue their passion for art and design.

With a few dimes in their pockets and an overload of optimism, they began envisioning a new type of an art and design platform.

In 2013, with the help of their friends and family, they launched articurate.net Beta and organised their first two exhibitions in London and New York.

Their mission was clear: to support great emerging artists and designers by connecting them to an international audience and to let people select (or crowd-curate) works of art and design for exhibitions.

In just one year, their concept turned into a platform with over a hundred of artists from 30+ countries. Collaboration proposals were being received from all over the world.

In 2015, art:i:curate launched its biggest innovation to date: the artist and designer co-production model. This model not only introduces a new and accessible way to discover and collect art, but most importantly supports emerging creatives in their work and practice through a community drive.

art:i:curate is neither a virtual gallery nor a traditional one: it is a place where boundaries are pushed and users become patrons and collectors by co-producing, crowd-curating, and acquiring the most promising talents of our times.

We are living in an era where the development of technology and social media has become a reality that enables people around the world to select, edit, and communicate ideas and visions – whether personal or collective. We believe that we are all curators in our everyday lives.

Making art and design accessible in a rather exclusive art world, does not mean decreasing its value. At art:i:curate, we believe that true value is created by a collective effort.
