PALM BEACH, FLA.- TW Fine Art
is presenting: Show Me The Money, a collective exhibition running from April 9th, 2021 to May 16th, 2021 at its outpost in Palm Beach, Florida. Show Me The Money features works by thirteen artists. Show Me The Money investigates the concept of currency through a visual and tactile exploration of both currencys tangible forms such as coins, woven paper bills, and precious metals and also the semiotics associated with wealth and materialism. Works by masters of contemporary and modern art are juxtaposed with works by TW-represented artists, highlighting TWs hybrid approach to fine art agency which unites established collectors with early and mid-career visual artists unparalleled enabling access to primary and secondary market works. Complementing the palpable explorations of currency, Carles García ODowds NFT G.O'D. Dollars will be making their digital debut.
Show Me The Money is an exercise in visual storytelling. Curatorially, for example, Show Me The Money depicts what happens when you break down the metaphors associated with currency, reducing it to its most basic physical characteristics and manipulate it in such a way that currency itself can serve as the basis for sculpture, as in the works of Johnny Swing and Stacey Lee Webber. At the same time, the signs and symbols associated with money and its purchasing power are made flexible, fungible, and playful in the works of Todd Pavlisko, which utilize plastic retail fasteners to depict dollar signs on canvas. Works by TW represented artists including Todd Pavlisko are brought into a curatorial dialogue with works by artists including Nick Cave, Andy Warhol, Barbara Kruger, Deborah Kass, giving rise to the experience in which the exhibited works quite literally show you the money.
TW Fine Art was founded by Mike De Paola as Fine Art Acquisitions in 2007. Fine Art Acquisitions focused on connecting passionate collectors of modern and contemporary art with the network and resources necessary to build and sustain an elite private art collection. In 2019, Ty Cooperman joined the Fine Art Acquisitions team as lead registrar.
Together, Mike and Ty repeatedly witnessed the growing gaps between talented artists and the art world-insiders who possess the knowledge and know-how to advance an artists career to the top of the market. Out of the desire to more effectively and efficiently create symbiotic relationships between fine artists, their management and representation, galleries, and collectors, TW Fine Art came to fruition in 2020.
TW Fine Art practices a hybrid model of fine artist representation and art collection management. Our in-house fine artist agency services entail managing an artist's career, along with the business backend required to produce and sell art. Simultaneously, we pair fine artists with the right galleries, artist services, dealers, and collectors on a global scale while also displaying and selling art directly from our Palm Beach, Florida outpost. Our approach to fine artist management means that we act as an intermediary between a fine artist and various other stakeholders. This allows artists to focus on art production while giving galleries the confidence that they can exhibit a TW Fine Art artist with the guarantee of efficiency and effectiveness. Through this collaborative effort, all parties' voices are amplified.
