International Galleries Alliance I.G.A. is envisioned to be a professional collaborative alliance between art galleries, building on the shared values, non-hierarchical partnerships, and non-centric programming that aims to represent the complexity of the contemporary art trade.
Through a non-profit association within a global multi-generational arts community, IGA will create new possibilities for support. Launching with an online summit and chat forum, IGA offers a space for its members to access and share information, enabling collegiate dialogue and providing opportunities for mutual learning.
IGA also operates as a resource for discovering art. It is launching a weekly newsletter and is developing a new online sales platform that will be autonomous, conceived by its members for its members, and independent of corporate ownership. No profits or commissions will be taken by IGA through any of its activities or initiatives. The data it generates is fully protected, while specific datasets relating to each gallery will be made accessible for the gallery’s own use.
IGA looks to empower its members to respond to evolving virtual and physical contexts, working together to nurture creative environments that challenge dominant models and cultivate a positively plural and diverse gallery world.
