Service for members
The Tyrolean Artists’ Association sees itself as a lobby and platform for artists in and from the Tyrol. It also offers its members an information service about invitations to tender and exhibitions, a publication archive, and advice on stays abroad/residencies and freelance work as an artist. With their membership card, artists receive reduced/free admission to various art institutions in the Tyrol and the surrounding area.
Together with a number of partners, the association regularly offers information events on topics of particular interest to artists, such as social security matters relating to precarious employment conditions in the arts and cultural sector.
With the membership card you receive reduced/free entrance to various art institutions in Tyrol and the surrounding area.
The membership fee is EUR 50,- per year. (BTV, IBAN: AT501600000100332272, BIC: BTVAAT22)
INTERNATIONAL IDENTITY CARD FOR ARTISTS
The International Artist’s Identity Card, issued by the International Association of Art (IAA), allows visual artists worldwide free or reduced admission to numerous museums and exhibition venues. Nationally active interest groups endeavour to get the card recognised in their respective countries. In Austria, this is the IG BILDENDE KUNST. When ordered collectively via the Tiroler Künstler:innenschaft, the card costs EUR 28,- for members of the Tyrolean Artists’ Association and is valid for two years.
The curated members’ exhibition takes place every other year.
Every two years, the Salon Expanded offers new members of the Tyrolean Artists’ Association an opportunity to introduce their own work but also artistic and non-artistic personal interests to colleagues and the general public.
This is a format to present different practices and directions of new contemporary art production in and from the Tyrol.
The Kunstpavillon has a mobile shelf so that current publications by the members can be presented to the public. We also collect members’ catalogues and artists’ books in our archive.
The program is aimed exclusively at members of the association and can take place in artists’ studios, in one of the houses of the Tyrolean Artists’ Association or in a completely different location. STUDIO VISITS aim to create a common space for exchange and getting to know each other.
The newsletter for members is published every second month and contains information on current exhibitions and events run by the Tyrolean Artists’ Association, announcements of its members’ exhibitions and events, and a selection of current calls for tenders at home and abroad.
Members area on the homepage
In the members’ area on the homepage of the Tiroler Künstler:innenschaft, announcements of exhibitions and events of the members are listed. It also contains current calls for proposals, grants and residencies in Austria and abroad.
The Tyrolean Artists’ Association regularly organises information events and workshops with experts for its members, examining relevant and up-to-date topics for visual artists such as social security and tax law.
