Feedback and Endorsement
for emergent artists
by experts in Contemporary Art
People in the art world know the difficulties that artists have to go through in order to get noticed. In this race, evaluations or references from prominent art figures are very helpful but difficult to get. They might take years costing artists a lot of money, as well as blood, sweat and tears. This might be especially hard for artists without the connections or resources to achieve this type of recognition. However, in the ODBK we believe this process shouldn’t be so hard and that the opportunities available to artists with set evaluations should be available to all artists, regardless of connections or income.
We believe one of the problems of this system of references is in the lack of access that certain artists have to these experts. It is because of this, that in the aims of leveling the playing field, we have created a system to bridge the gap between artists and experts in art. Through its database of art-world participants called the AMARC (Art Market Regulation Commission), artists can apply to get valuable feedback from top experts in the art world. Once the process is done, they will receive an honest feedback and, if this is positive, an endorsement that they can add to their CV. The ODBK will also maintain and publish a page on the website witch the expert in art would include a certification of the reference.
Register on the ODBK website and create your profile as an artist. Afterwards you can choose the expert in art you want to recieve the feedback and endorsement from the list of the ODBK experts in art. The expert in art will proceed to accept the request. After the feed is payed, the expert in art will execute the feedback and the endorsement (in case the feedback is positive). In any case the feedback will be sent to the artist. If the evaluator considers the artist’s work can be recommended, an option will be activated to create an automatic recommendation letter that the artist can download and add to his CV to support his work.
The first evaluation is for free, from the second one, each one has a symbolic donation value of 20 Euros.
To become an evaluator register at the ODBK website (at the registration form click at the checkbox “become a top evaluator”). Once registered, log in to fill the evaluator information form by editing your profile and filling in the forms at the “General Tab” and “Evaluator Profile”. The ODBK team will receive and evaluate your application. All application will be considered by a committee. After approval, the art profesional’s profile will be included in the experts list on the ODBK website, where artists can find them and solicit a feedback and endorsement. Or the expert in art can visit the next list of artists and select and execute any number of Feedback and Endorsement they wish. List of artists requiring Feedback and Endorsement.
