‘We Pay Artists’ | Campaign in Iceland for Equitable Pay for Visual Artists

sim-icelandThe campaign “We pay artists” has started in Iceland. It’s purpose is to improve the working conditions and status of artists. Experienced and educated visual artists do not get paid for their work, this has to change.

SÍM – The Association of Icelandic Artists, hopes that through this campaign, it will be able to make a significant impact on museum and gallery representatives, on other cultural institutions, the government, the public and on visual artists themselves.

The core of the campaign is an agreement for artists when participating in and contributing to an exhibition. The draft can be the basis for an agreement with all museums in Iceland and galleries financed by the public sector, in part or in whole.

A report on the campaign can be found in the fifth edition of the publication STARA and can be viewed online here: issuu.com/stara-sim/
