Staam up is the beautiful meeting between visual artists and hotels.
A visual artist is constantly looking for places to display his or her work so that it can be seen by as many people as possible who might appreciate it and want to buy it. On the other hand, hotels are happy to lend their walls and space to artists in order to offer them nice opportunities to exhibit, they are also happy to welcome artists for a special stay.
The key idea of Staam up is: to create a platform where visual artists will find a maximum of opportunities to exhibit and sell their works from hotels from all over the world.
Stam up offers this:
- Find in one place hotels selected for their quality and their support to artists and artistic creation.
- Register and apply to the calls for applications in a few clicks.
But beyond creating an online platform, Staam up is based on key values
Commitment: the art world is universal and unifying and should not be reserved for a small circle of so-called insiders who exclude 90% of artistic creation,
Fairness: artists apply anonymously, as we want to put the work before the CV,
Respect for artists: we refuse calls for applications that do not offer sufficient guarantees as to the value of the works and artists.
We hope to highlight ALL visual artists, whether they are beginners or experienced, amateurs or professionals, and to give visibility to ALL hotels that love art and artists.
- Hanging is ensured by the hotel establishment which must, by contract with Staam up, provide scenographic elements and photographs of the works hung.
- Insurance: Exhibitions are insured by the hoteliers via their RC Pro (Professional Civil Liability) contracts which they must provide to Staam up before any exhibition. If the cumulative value of the works exhibited so requires, additional insurance is taken out by Staam up.
