Benefits of APT
APT allows artists to effectively participate in the long-term value appreciation of their artworks and the works of the peers in their trust, while storage, transportation, and insurance costs are covered by APT. Through the APT Institute, APT also lends artworks in the APT Collection to leading museums, galleries and other art venues, maximizing exposure and increasing the reputation of APT and its individual artists.
Drawing upon the concept of mutual assurance societies, each participating artist benefits financially from the commercial success of all the other artists in the trust. APT provides artists with a unique mechanism for risk diversification which pays to the artists 72% of the net proceeds from artworks sold by the trust, a figure unmatched by any other organization in the art world.
APT’s experienced curators have proven to be quite successful in identifying the most promising of contemporary artists. However, the art world is very fickle. Today’s stars may not be as successful in the future. APT leverages the successes of today’s artists with those of tomorrow. Joining APT provides even the most celebrated artists of today with the chance for future financial security over time. In addition, the benefits of international exposure improve the reputation and careers of even the most successful of local artists extending their visibility across national borders.< Back to FAQS
