About Art Matters Now
Art Matters Now (AMN) is a tech-driven curatorial initiative that engages artists and the public in creative discussions about social issues. Currently based in Tyne and Wear, the initiative is run by a two-person team passionate about supporting artists and making culture accessible.

What we do
AMN curates exhibition programmes to address social issues that matter to the contemporary world, while encouraging emerging artists to reflect on their roles in society. Simultaneously, our work entails research, artwork interpretation, exhibition installation and documentation.
360° Virtual tourS & Digital content
Alongside every exhibition that AMN physically sets up, we produce a digitised version of it for perpetual online display and documentation. As we do so, we hope to help artists who work with us reach a wider audience. We are open to collaboration with other art and cultural organisations in producing virtual exhibition tours or other forms of digital content, such as videos and interactive VR exhibitions. Please contact us to learn more.
With the understanding that many art graduates may find it challenging to find their footing in the art world, AMN actively strives to create professional development and exhibition opportunities for emerging artists. Our support extends to offering personalised feedback to artists participating in our exhibitions, providing them with technical assistance in workshop delivery and artwork display, as well as connecting them with other professionals in the wider arts network.
