Art + Commerce is a visionary global agency which represents the most influential image-makers in the industry, setting the standard for the management and development of artists’ careers. Operating offices in New York City, Paris and London, Art + Commerce represents talent at the highest level by providing a diverse range of support for the most forward thinking artists in the industry. As a pioneer in the development of image-makers, the agency now represents preeminent filmmakers in addition to spearheading various digital media endeavors.
Founded in the early 1980s at a time of renewed interest by artists to create editorial and advertising content, the concept of Art + Commerce was simple yet unprecedented – to create an agency capable of supporting image-makers within the realms of both art and commerce.
Art + Commerce is committed to extending the cultural currency of new and historically significant photographs. The Image Archive licenses photographs by many of the photographers currently represented for assignment, as well as artists estates such as Robert Mapplethorpe, Erwin Blumenfeld and Guy Bourdin.
