About the GFAA Program
The GFAA program honors innovation and excellence in exhibition design, historical context, educational value, and public appeal. The program’s mission is to develop interest and passion for fine art, and to further its educational role in society.
GFAA is the first annual program ever created to recognize the best curated art and design exhibitions and installations worldwide. This program includes exhibitions in museums, galleries, art fairs and biennials, as well as public installations.
GFAA has as its primary purpose to elevate the importance and relevancy of fine art in the world today: economically, socially, and culturally. GFAA endeavors to be world renowned as the premier art and design award program. Over time, the number of awards will grow to encompass more categories, and awards added for significant themes and important individual contributors.
More than 30 dedicated professionals from 18 countries across 4 continents are the greatest assets to GFAA. With extensive experience in art, academia, technology and business, they are committed to the GFAA program and its mission, and ensure its future growth and success.
GFAA Plans & Goals
The program acknowledges the accomplishments of the nominees, and celebrates the award winners. Through association, the program also benefits the public image and branding of its partners and supporters.
The GFAA program attracts a heightened interest of global art collectors and the sophisticated market affiliated with the world of fine art; and engages existing supporters of cultural institutions. The award ceremony is exclusive and prestigious, garnering national and international media exposure.
Additionally, the program endeavors to connect fine art with a much larger and broader audience. This is achieved via photo and video representation of the exhibitions on the website, each piece accompanied by curated music, augmented by a comprehensive social media campaign and online voting for the final award – “Youniversal.”
The practice and study of art have no barriers of language, time or place- and therefore are ideal platforms to improve communication and understanding of different cultures and beliefs.
Many cultural sectors have increased their audiences over the past decade. The popularity of fashion, design and architecture, cooking, dancing and singing have all grown over the past decade through an increasing number of reality shows and awards. At the same time, fine art has seemingly less public awareness, and there has never been a truly global art award program. The Global Fine Art Award program fills that void.
