Inspired by Swizz Beatz' suggestion of giving artists a percentage of all secondary sale proceeds, we’re excited to announce the Artist Initiative. Artists can choose to retain 25% of Otis' profits from the resale of their work.
Our commitment to an artist-first platform doesn’t stop there. We will also publicly display artists’ work, both through our own exhibition spaces as well as through institutional loans, create educational content and programming around their work, and commit ourselves to supporting their long-term career development.
This is just the start but we hope that we can inspire others to do the same. Join us in creating a more artist-first industry.
