Mission Statement

 

The Contemporary Art Modern Project Gallery, (The CAMP Gallery) specializes in art advisory and contemporary art with a focus on emerging and mid-career artists working in: installation, painting, photography, sculpture, textiles, and video art with a specific direction of both self and worldly reflection. Looking at art, as a whole, through a reactionary and interdisciplinary approach, the gallery covers the ever populating notion of society and life in general through art and curation, offering a creative space both in the gallery and out—where creativity and reality co-exist. 


Boasting a mixed arts program of at least 25 exhibitions annually, both in the gallery and online, as well as art fairs, we strive to bring focus on the artist without exposing them to exploitative practices rampant in the art world. We create collaborative relationships with the artist and the collector, partnering with online giants to increase exposure, and are known for our in-depth knowledge, advice, and respect for the artist and the collector. We are committed to cultivating connections and relationships between ourselves, the artist, and both the collector and the public, thereby removing the curtain that keeps these spheres separate. The CAMP’s entire modus operandi is to: protect art, the artist, and to keep them in the realm of their art and vision as it is always the art that matters. 
 

 

 

About

 

The Contemporary Art Modern Project exists at the intersection of higher thought and aesthetics, turning the classic gallery model on its head in principle and practice. Founded by Melanie Prapopoulos only a little over a year ago, The CAMP’s approach to curation and criticism is equal parts academic and experimental, resulting in a robust exhibition program that spotlights a range of experiences and media in roster and staff. Coupled with a deep seated aversion to artist exploitation and an insistence on nurturing the relationship between artist, collector and gallery patron, The Contemporary Art Modern Project's reactionary approach is intentional, designed to disrupt the exploitative norms of the art industry and safeguard the relationship between artistic expression and appreciation.
