If you are selected to be an artist of the Art Volt Collection (AVC), you agree to consign a minimum of three artworks exclusively to the AVC for the duration agreed at the time of the contract (standard consignment duration of 3 years). During this period, your artworks will be featured on the AVC dedicated website, available for rental or sale to clients of the AVC. If, after the period of consignment, your artworks are not sold, they will be removed from the AVC.
For the moment, the AVC only accepts artworks either in 2D or 3D formats, with minimal technical equipment required: painting, drawing, print, ceramics, sculpture, photography, installation, fibres & material practices, video, design objects, etc. Eventually, other media – dance, theatre, performance, music, etc. – will be accepted. Stay tuned!
Until an artwork is rented or sold, the artist is responsible for its storage. Once an artwork is rented or sold, the AVC communicates with the artist to agree on a delivery and installation date and procedure.
70% of the sale or rental amount of the artwork is paid to the artist in the form of an artist fee; the remaining 30% is retained by the AVC to support the administration and management of the service.
Each year the new AVC artist cohort is invited to attend an “onboarding bootcamp” in which a workshop on pricing your artworks is offered. Pricing is set by individual artists and validated by the AVC.
Rental prices are set according to five (5) categories of established sale price: A, B, C, D and E. Works may be rented for a six-month period (renewable) or a one-year period (renewable). See table of rental prices below.

All AVC clients who rent artworks must comply with minimum conservation standards. They must also provide proof of insurance in case of loss or damage. All transportation and installation of rented artworks is performed by a professional who is covered by insurance.
