Paying Artists aims to secure payment for artists who exhibit in publicly-funded galleries.

‘We won’t have great artists making significant work in the years to come if we don’t tackle the problem of low or no pay’ – Yinka Shonibare MBE

Paying Artists Visual artists in the UK are regularly expected to develop and exhibit their work without a fee.  We don’t think this is right.

Paying artists for the work they do means that we’ll still be able to access quality art which reflects the broadest possible spectrum of human experience.

Whether you’re a gallery visitor, artist, art  student, policy maker or run a gallery, sigh up to the campaign. See the campaigns achievements so far
