About CultureLabel

CultureLabel.com brings together a hand-curated edit of the most stylish products and affordable art from hundreds of galleries, artists, independent stores and museums from around the world.

Our founding partners comprise iconic UK arts brands including Tate, V&A, Saatchi Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery and many more.

Back in 2007, we were young entrepreneurs with a simple but big idea: to create a great site where art, product, design, heritage, fashion, culture – and a whole lot more – collide. We wanted to create an online store that offers affordable style, and where money spent on shopping made a positive difference to the arts organisations you bought from.

Think of us as your creative department store; we curate the very best product from our arts partners’ shops and designers’ collections, then bring them together for you to browse and buy.

The price you pay with us is the same as if you go direct to our partners’ individual sites – the only difference is the ability to buy from all 200 in one basket.

Every single sale on CultureLabel.com helps to support some of the greatest arts and heritage organisations, of all sizes, in all kinds of places, directly funding a brilliant range of innovative work.

Art HK Founder Tim Etchells Launches New Sydney Contemporary Art Fair

Less than one month after Australian art dealers Vasili Kaliman and Jarrod Rawlins of KALIMANRAWLINS gallery announced the launch of a new Australian art fair to be held in Melbourne, the launch of another new Australian art fair has just been announced by Tim Etchells, founder of ART HK.

The new biennial contemporary fair will be called Sydney Contemporary and will be launched in April 2013. Featuring established and emerging galleries from Sydney and overseas, the fair will cater to a broad spectrum of experienced and potentially new collectors.

Sydney Contemporary will showcase between 60 and 80 local, national and international galleries in its inaugural year. The fair will feature unique sections including New Contemporary – dedicated to the artist run initiatives and innovative young galleries, and Paper Contemporary, a curated showcase of prints and limited edition photography from leading galleries.

According to Etchells, “Sydney Contemporary represents the first time this city has hosted a serious, high-end art fair. We expect it to play a significant role in helping to focus attention on the Sydney art scene in the same way that ART HK focused attention on Asian art. The fair provides a vital new platform from which galleries, artists and collectors can deepen and grow networks and relationships both with local contacts and throughout the broader Asia Pacific region,“

The inaugural Sydney Contemporary will be held from Friday 12th until Sunday 14th April 2013 at the Hordern Pavillion and Royal Hall of Industries at Moore Park in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, with the Vernissage held on the evening of Thursday 11th April 2013.

Sydney Contemporary is organised by Art Fairs Australia Pty Ltd, a company founded by Tim Etchells of SME London Ltd. Etchells is founder of ART HK, the Hong Kong international art fair, which has grown to become a major fixture on the international art calendar.

The Other Art Fair – Voting Site – Now Live

We were commissioned last year to develop a voting website for London’s newest affordable art fair ‘The Other Art Fair’, that delivers an open platform to connect art buyers of all tastes and experience directly with the most talented emerging artists before they are signed.

The voting site was built in two phases, with the second phase being completed recently for the international voting panel to cast their vote and select this years artists for the show in May 2012. With thousands of applicants applying to the show ‘Ryan’ the show founder and director needed a way of presenting all of the applicants to his selected panel online. So we developed an application area to the existing website for all applicants to submit their work and then further developed a secondary ‘voting website’ for all of those applicants to be fed into. The panel then cast their votes and the website did the rest, producing voting stats and analytical results for the final site to be populated before launch.
