Testimonial Marisa Connections

For me, getting the opportunity to be part of this community (the artists, the curators, the advisory's, listen to the lectures, participate in exhibitions) made me improve all my skills and teach me how to be a professional.

Marisa Bernotti | Dolores, Uruguay
Testimonial Dainy

Uncool has been a tremendous opportunity and challenge to take my practice to the next level.
I have found a great community of artists that has allowed me to know better the creative artistic process, which is indispensable as a curator. It is an invaluable opportunity to hear from accomplished artists, curators, art fairs, and museums directors first-hand and in an intimate conversation setting.
All of this, topped with the synergy of a group of individuals working towards the common goal of being better art professionals, is what makes all the time, money, and efforts invested pay off!

Dainy Tapia | Miami, US
Testimonial Juliano M

Before, I saw myself as an artist somewhat aimless and not belonging to any group, both to share experiences and think together about my artistic practice in the visual arts. After joining Uncool Artist, I feel part of a community of people who think about art and the world beyond art. A very plural community both in language and thought changed my practice a lot and gave me confidence in speaking and presenting my work.

Juliano Mazzuchini | Buenos Aires, Argentina
Testimonial Daniele

I feel like I'm participating in a generous community. Opportunities have arisen, and I didn't expect them. Now I feel driven to produce more, and I think safer. Now I can see that loneliness was not my problem. It is a system problem. Uncool Artist showed me that I have options and life outside the Ego's system.

Danielle Cukierman | Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Testimonial Sika

Uncool Artist community is a dream come true for me. Where else could one meet, network, brainstorm, share their work and get personable constructive critique, if not Uncool Artist? A community of artists, writers, researchers, curators, art historians, all unabashed and unapologetically dedicated to building and sustaining the future of the arts!

Sika Foyer | New York, U.S.
Testimonial Erica

I was mainly looking for my people. I was pretty doubtful about the art market and frankly felt a bit discouraged. I used to think that the hardships of being an artist were much greater than they (actually) are. I thought that building my path would depend on becoming a sellable product, and I kept feeling I was meant to be an outsider after all. I quickly understood that my success depended on ME, my attitude, energy, and my behavior towards circumstances. At Uncool Artist, I quickly learned that I had an alternative to the so-called "game." The community indeed helps—a lot. I learned by experiencing it.

Erica Iassuda | Itu, Brazil
Testimonial Thais

Before I joined Uncool Artist, I felt adrift. I was highly imaginative, working instinctively but had no specific direction. I felt lost on how I could join all the pieces of art in my life together as a career path that made sense. Now at Uncool Artist, I developed a better sight of how my past got me here and what steps I can take to build a prosperous career as an artist. Also, I don't feel alone anymore, but part of this loving and caring community that grows and flourishes together.
