Artists Wanted : A Year In Review is an international, all-medium-encompassing art exhibition. Artists Wanted is a collaborative project between several New York City artists and creative organizations working to build new lasting opportunities for artists.
Artists Wanted was created three years ago by two Brooklyn based artists, Jason Goodman and William Etundi Jr. Their first hand experience in the art world was the inspiration for creating this bold new platform for finding burgeoning talent and exposing it to the world.
With judges ranging from actor Steve Buscemi to DEVO frontman Mark Mothersbaugh to curators from The Guggenheim and MOMA, we try to balance new perspectives with established art world sensibilities to find work that transcends the typical.
Our first opening, for artist Kim Holleman at the Whitebox Exhibition Space was their largest, with 1,000 attendees. Our second featured the work of Pete Eckert, a blind photographer, who has become an art sensation with international acclaim including a feature in Time Magazine. Our most recent two openings were phenomenal successes hosted at the Open House Gallery and The New Museum in Manhattan. This is an exciting era for art, the best is yet to come.
