The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
The Institute for Southern Contemporary Art (ISCA) was founded in 2016 by João Enxuto and Erica Love to develop an algorithm that potentiates the highest possible revenue from the sale of contemporary art in the American South or anywhere else considered to be South. The ISCA algorithm analyzes and models art markets to generate a detailed production plan for Southern art that can successfully enter the market flow. ISCA proceeds with the understanding that art is produced as a commodity, it doesn’t become one when it is sold. Revenue from ISCA art products will be used to fund a research institute dedicated to advancing critical art practices that can promote new terms for art production.
