The Best Non-Profit Art Spaces in Zurich

by Olga Stefan
New York City, San Francisco, London, Berlin, Miami, and the UAE.   Zurich, Switzerland, is known for finance, a manicured old town, and breathtaking lakeside views. But underneath the polished image of a rich and flourishing city—reinforced by 2016’s concomitant citywide art events set to attract innumerable tourists and generous public and private funds, namely Manifesta 11 and the 100-year-anniversary celebration of Dada—the reality of Zurich’s independent art spaces is not quite as...

The Best Non-Profit Art Spaces in the UAE

by Danna Lorch
New York City, San Francisco, London, Berlin, and Miami.   Can a not for profit entity truly exist in a country that does not assess taxes? In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), neither Emirati citizens or expat residents pay taxes. As a result, high-income individuals and companies aren’t incentivized to make charitable donations or establish foundations based on tax write-offs, as in many other countries like the US. Though some galleries, foundations, and programs describe themselves as not... [more]

The Best Non-Profit Art Spaces in Berlin

by Nicole Rodríguez Woods
New York City and San Francisco guides too.  Berlin expresses its art scene in many different forms. Different spaces, missions, and structures. This is about the impact of non-profit spaces and the purpose they serve. Though market-driven galleries are growing in prominence, some non-profits have risen to great importance. KW, for example, started as a small artist run non-profit space and is now one of the more influential in the city. The following are some non-profits with varying... [more]

The Best Non-Profits Art Spaces in San Francisco

by Leora Lutz
New York City guides as well. In the last couple of years there has been a rash of displacement and evictions in San Francisco due to the real estate boom. Art non-profits have been particularly impacted by the recent shifts that by and large push out those who cannot afford to pay the exorbitant market share rates, which are in excess of $19,000 per month or more. In October 2014, the city of San Francisco announced a Displacement Mitigation Program to help assist organizations that were... [more]

The Best Non-Profit Art Spaces in New York

by Joe Bucciero
  “There are eight million stories in the Naked City”—and a decent chunk of them are think pieces about whether or not living (and for our purposes, making art) in New York is still a tenable enterprise. The older generation—the David Byrnes and Patti Smiths, the New York Times—keeps telling us that New York is dead, that we should move somewhere else: “the next Brooklyn,” perhaps, whether that means Detroit, northern New Jersey, or wherever. Despite these obituaries, however, artists keep... [more]

The Best Non-Profit Art Spaces in Los Angeles

by Lauren McQuade
   ART + PRACTICE Art + Pratice. Courtesy A+P and The Hammer Museum   Art + Practice (A+P) is a nonprofit founded by artist and Leimert Park native Mark Bradford, philanthropist and collector Eileen Harris Norton, and social activist Allan DiCastro. With the South Los Angeles neighborhood’s reputation as an African American cultural destination, the so-called “Leimert Park Renaissance” will no doubt feed off of A+P’s community-centered programming—A+P has already been providing the...
