For more than three decades, The Bronx Museum of the Arts’ Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program has supported emerging artists by providing professional development resources and introducing their work to the public. AIM is structured as a “collaborative residency” in which participants work directly with established artists, collectors, art critics, curators, dealers, lawyers, and other art world professionals. AIM sessions provide information, instruction, and professional guidance by addressing areas of practical concern to artists, among them are curatorial practice, copyright law, exhibition and public art opportunities, gallery representation, grant writing, income taxes, and marketing. The 13-week seminar is offered annually in two sessions, each with 36 artists, and culminating with an exhibition of the participants’ work. Among past participants in the AIM program are Glenn Ligon—who was one of the early AIM artists and whose work was first exhibited at the Bronx Museum—and Polly Apfelbaum, Rina Banerjee, Amy Cutler, Anton Vidokle, and Phoebe Washburn. In 2012, Joseph R. Wolin was selected as the Art Critic in Residence for the AIM program.
Bronx Calling: The Second AIM Biennial is generously supported by MetLife Foundation and Jerome Foundation. The mid-town presentation of Bronx Calling has been made possible by a generous grant from The 1285 Avenue of the Americas Art Gallery.
