While curators, janitors, technicians, and editors get paid, artists commonly do not. WAGE is a New York–based collective addressing the “organized irresponsibility of the art market” and the “promise of exposure” that is the main currency for artist remuneration. This project is not as grandly ambitious as the Art Workers’ Coalition of the late 1960s: WAGE’s priorities rest on a simple, specific demand—for the comprehensive establishment of artist (and freelance curator) fees—without invoking a broad agenda that sounds dramatic but goes nowhere.
