by The Artslant Team
This summer, we launched our non-profit series, bringing you guides the best spaces going against the grain in the world's most commercial cultural cities.

We've also gained a huge insight into alternative models for showing high quality art that exist in some of the most expensive places in the world. Here are all of our non-profit art guides,...

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 Miami

by Rob Goyanes
New York City, San Francisco, and London.    Miami is a decidedly for-profit city. Like most international urban hubs, the Magic City is governed by a financial logic that focuses on speculative real estate and models of gentrification. Aware of this, and often with the support of some top players belonging to this system, Miami's cultural milieu has developed a healthy network of non-profit organizations that serve as activators of community development through art, literature, and music....

Get Up to Speed with Istanbul’s Galleries and Emerging Artist Spaces

by Pınar Üner Yılmaz
Hosting 102 leading and emerging galleries from 24 countries, Contemporary Istanbul (CI) is one of Istanbul’s top international art fairs. More than its younger counterpart ArtInternational, CI presents the best that the local scene has to offer, and although it mainly brings together high-end commercial galleries, CI also hosts non-profits, artist initiatives, and even hybrid galleries that question the notion of “fine arts.” With its “Emerging” sector and wide range of Istanbul exhibitors,...

The Best Non-Profit Art Spaces in London

by Phoebe Stubbs
New York City and San Francisco too.    In the London art world, Frieze is a bit like Christmas. As soon as the summer starts to fade it rears its head: the phrase "Frieze week," like "Christmas time," becomes a synonym for heady consumerism, specially commissioned exhibitions, and drunken parties. This is probably the best time, therefore, to shed light on another part of the art world: the influential and varied not-for-profit spaces in London—especially those with socially engaged... [more]

Art Destination: Why San Antonio Deserves More Attention

by Claudia Arozqueta
This past September, I did a curatorial residency at Casa Chuck in San Antonio, Texas. This was not my first time there (years before I curated an exhibition for the Contemporary Art Month) but, as it always happens when you are installing a show, I barely poked my nose out of the gallery. Happily, during this second visit I had the time to experience the best of San Antonio's arts community. San Antonio has a diverse, vibrant, and welcoming art scene that gets together in ever-fluxing arts... [more]

Finding Common Language: Hand-In-Glove Conference 2015

by Tara Plath
This past week, more than four hundred art organizers and alternative art space practitioners gathered at the Soap Factory in Minneapolis for Hand-In-Glove 2015, a semiannual conference, to discuss, debate, and digest a wide range of concerns in the field. The idea itself posed a challenge, with one panel aptly titled “What is Our Common Field?” In its third iteration and gaining momentum, this year’s event was co-organized by Common Field and Works Progress Studio. The list of participating... [more]
