The cultural mission of The American University of Paris Fine Arts Gallery is to present works of art created by the AUP Community - students, alumni, and faculty - as well as to highlight the University's cultural diversity through the exhibition of works by professional artists from different backgrounds and cultures. All exhibitions are open to the AUP Community and the public.
The Gallery is not a commercial entity and all sales must be negotiated directly with the artists. The Gallery receives no percentage of any sales that might occur.
AUP is not responsible for damaged or stolen works at any time during the hanging or taking down or during the exhibition itself.
Exhibiting artists are responsible for framing their own work, delivering and picking up their work at the agreed time. The artist is also responsible for creating and sending out the invitations using their own mailing list with the assistance of AUP. AUP will also send electronic invitations from its own selected list.
Gallery openings will take place on Thursdays from 18:00 to 21:00 (when possible) with AUP providing refreshments which can of course be supplemented by the exhibiting artist. The duration of exhibitions can be for two to three weeks at the discretion of the Gallery director.
The Gallery Director will determine which works are chosen and how they will be hung working closely with the exhibiting artist who must be present for the hanging of the works. The Gallery Director can refuse to exhibit any works that are deemed inappropriate or offensive to the AUP community or general public.
The exhibiting artist hereby declares that he/she has read and understood the foregoing conditions on the basis of which he/she is given the opportunity of exhibiting his/her works at the AUP Fine Arts Gallery and hereby waives and releases AUP of any and all claims arising out of or in connection with his/her works exhibited there and any transaction or event relating thereto.
