Social Justice: The Path is an art piece comprising sculpture, performance, spoken word and visual art. Underrepresented artists or those working with themes of social justice, equality or climate activism should respond with work they would like to exhibit as part of a grid of 50 like-minded artists.

The exhibition is open to both established and emerging artists. The piece shines a light on critical collective action to help us fight major and interlinked societal issues of our time, specifically climate change and inequality. More than just artwork, Social Justice: The Path is a platform for transformation, designed to make us pause and reflect on the biggest challenges we face and determine what we can do to change our world for the better.

During the show: 

The selection process and curation will be managed by Amy Jackson. An exquisite corpse will be compiled of all artists working with social justice, QR codes will link buyers, collectors and viewers to artists' work online. Ahead of the show, each artist will have their exhibition piece, alongside two others of the artist's choice uploaded to Artsy, the leading online platform for selling work, usually available only for those with gallery representation. Thus this is an excellent opportunity to promote your work and have access to buyers worldwide online.

About SHIM’s mission: The art fair model is 60 years old and has changed little in that time. Designed as a trade event where galleries sell directly to clients inside a shared space. Measured by retail economics. How much the linear wall or floor footage costs determines who can afford to participate. This model is fine for a mid to large gallery that can afford the risk. It is less than ideal when considering the large share of the creative art world that is excluded. How to resolve this is the challenge. The main challenge to making the art fair (and the art world) more inclusive is that the art fair imagines its users to be almost exclusively galleries. This excludes all art institutions and universities, regional collectives, small galleries, geographically isolated individuals who share the same ethical, formal, or aesthetic concerns, and artists who are now achieving viral fame without any desire for traditional gallery representation. The solution to expansion therefore must address this crucial “filtering” dilemma. How to expand the art fair model to new talented artists while maintaining curatorial control? SHIM supports a “blended” art fair model approach. One that provides current galleries with traditional services, while also allowing access for those usually excluded.
