Common Questions
Where are you located?

As of the summer of 2017, we are based in Los Angeles.


Who chooses the flowers on Office Notebook?

Often individual staff members pick out the flowers, but whenever we have visitors we ask them to make an arrangement for us.


How many people work at Contemporary Art Group?

We currently have three people on staff who have full-time responsibilities and regularly participate in the Contemporary Art Daily editorial process. We get help from a small group of freelancers who help with things like coding and data entry. We also have a board who helps to oversee our operations.


What are the editorial meetings like?

Each week we editorial meetings to discuss current exhibitions and decide which ones to publish. All staff contribute to these decisions. We typically consider all of the documentation that we have received, the press release or other texts, and often research past exhibitions and further context for the shows we're considering. As a result of these meetings, we also generate knowledge of artists and venues that we wish to follow but may not decide to publish yet.


Do you have a mailing list?

At the moment, CAD does not have a mailing list. In the meantime, we recommend that you subscribe to our site via the RSS feed. If you'd like to be added to a mailing list we develop in the future, please email office@contemporaryartdaily.com


How do you handle members of your staff being involved in an exhibition under consideration?

If an editorial staff member was involved in a project up for consideration, or otherwise feels uncomfortable, they recuse themselves and do not participate in the conversation about that project. Such projects tend to require more unanimity than a normal project— if we aren't very sure about our decision, we tend to err on the side of declining.


Why don't you include information like title, date, and material of the artworks you publish?

Unfortunately, we do not have the resources, and therefor the labor required to be this specific in our coverage. Hopefully in the future we can provide this information for each work. In the meantime, if there is information you're specifically interested in, please feel free to get in touch and we can help you find what you're looking for.


Why do you need such high resolution images?

We aim for high resolution images so that we can offer our audience a detailed view of the individual works and installation of each exhibition we cover. Our hope is that the quality of documentation we provide may articulate more about the show than a venue's own preview of it, thus making the show more accessible to a wider audience, not only those who are local or can afford to travel on account of the exhibition.


Who are the galleries listed with images on the side of Daily?

We offer some extra visibility in the form of a sponsorship to venues listed in our directory, Contemporary Art Venues. This annual partnership includes an image for rotation with our other sponsors on the home page of Contemporary Art Daily, as well as a more prominent listing in the directory.


How do you make money?

The majority of our funding comes from the annual sponsorships forged with venues in our directory as well as advertising partnerships with other companies that are featured in the larger banners on Contemporary Art Daily's homepage. We are a non-profit organization and donations are also a part of our regular funding.


How do I make a donation?

You can send a donation through PayPal or mail us a check. All donations are tax-deductible.
