InSitu Works is an online marketplace and advisory that offers seasoned and novice collectors the opportunity to discover, learn, and acquire contemporary art. Sponsored by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and Artspire (part of the New York Foundation for the Arts), InSitu Works was conceived as an alternative to help collectors find high-quality artwork and grant emerging artists a platform for exposure and development. Purchases made through InSitu Works directly contribute to the promotion and development of emerging artists.
Why “InSitu”? In situ in latin means in place, or in the original position. In the context of art, in situ refers to a work of art made specifically for a host site, taking into account the space and location in which the work of art is installed or exhibited. Our goal is to find the perfect piece for your space, hence the name InSitu Works.
