At a Glance
Artist in the room helps working artists interested in ramping-up, jump-starting and super-charging their creative ambitions and practices. We are a feature rich and tech-savvy agency that designs and implements solutions for generating value as easy, interesting and successful as possible. Regardless if an artist works alone and is the sole entrepreneur and CEO of their business, or is embedded with a diverse group of other artists and invested professionals, Artist in the room helps artists take in extra oxygen to burn more fuel, do more work, and increase the power and worth of their artistic undertakings.
Possible is everything
Artist in the Room's wide range of operational, production, service and entrepreneurial stratagems gives artists and creatives the ability to set realistic expectations, procedures, and responsive systems tailored to their particular limits, needs and realities. As we like to say: Possible is everything.
We bring proven ways to strengthen the effectiveness of new, existing or revised plans, schedules, and budgets. We know how to strategically implement and promote value-added experiences for audiences and customers which are authentic to you and your work. When you work with us everything is possible, until it's not.
A professional platform
We are a professional service working every day to help artists, galleries, and new creative leaders reach out, connect, influence and grow their markets, customers, revenues, and new creative opportunities. Our professional approach to an artist's business is successful because we help identify, translate and develop what is unique about each artist and artistic experience into the development of a message and the organization of business priorities and tactics. Only then do we match that up with a bottom-line strategy for executing the art in a public square, and implementing it with the same standards and credibility found in the creative work itself.
On-track and stress free
When there is an artist in the room there is no end to the amount of new, more compelling ideas or directions being proposed, created, pursued, and transformed. Our goal is to help artists and arts-driven organizations redefine and implement the actual side of their desires and turn down the chatter. With sensible plans, tested initiatives, solid and equally flexible organizational scaffolding, we know how to keep things flowing, light, on-track and stress free.
We believe that the successful development of an energized and reliable approach to any artistic undertaking should be guided by
When everything feels like it is moving up to the next level artists and arts organizations must remember that it is the work and the work alone that makes this possible. The immediacy, unity and impact of the work is what gives the work that strong, material pulse everyone feels; an excitement for what happens next; and a thrill that something is about to blossom. The artist, their collaborators or organization, has achieved something that will have worth for a long time. It has purpose and meaning. It should be grasped close and secured. Unfortunately, none of that gives it value.
An artistic occurrence or idea comes before there is a known demand for it, its value is a consequence; and for artistic undertakings it is a consequence of engagement with a public, private or critical marketplace, and the value-added reactions that ensue.
The credibility of a creative endeavor is based in the specific work itself; its authenticity tied to its uniqueness. Value, on the other hand is determined by the reverse: a common acceptance of broad, all-purpose measurements, comparisons and testable results.
Raise your expectations for what you want to generate when you engage with public, or private markets, just like you did when it came to the creative effort needed to make the work matter. No one can take care of your business better than you, and no one can talk you in to being successful and ready to leap up and explore the limits of your creative ambitions unless you are fully committed about it.
Ambition, as in the phrase creative ambition, cannot be limited to just what you create. It has to be invested equally into what the work will generate, yearn for and aspire to. In the race for value, combing Ambition with a regiment of smart thinking, careful gestures, and skilled and informed decisions, will get you out ahead, leading, identifying and turning limits into actual gains.
The real beauty of what we do
Is recognize how any one decision commits a person to a class of tactics and resources inherent to any solution's success. These often unrewarding and even unwelcome restrictions are always more multi-faceted than expected, especially if the person is unfamiliar with the stages of execution. As such, we strongly encourage artists to exercise control over their ideas and standards by making sure that artists with little expert knowledge have interfaces to work with that are easy to use, refined, and sensible enough to pick up the basics without any training at all.
