THE GWWI - COLLABORATE WITH THE ARTIST & GALLERIES PROGRAM
The Mission of GWWI is to represent and promote known and emerging contemporary USA & Canadian based artists and the galleries that represent them, in Europe and South America. To also represent and promote known and emerging contemporary European and South American Artists, and the galleries that represent them in the USA and Canada. Bringing the artists the needed exposure, prominence and recognition in new markets around the world is our mission.
GWWI Exhibitions and Shows have 20 to 400 artists across the arts disciplines, with 100 to 10000 pieces physically on display at the shows. There are also 10-200 artists with 50-400 digital images of art works that are unable to be physically at the shows displayed at each show on large screens.
Shows usually start with a VIP Gala Black Tie Exhibition on a Friday night and the shows are Saturday and Sunday with awards on Saturday and the auction at the end of the show on Sunday. Some shows are for 3-10 days or more.
GWWI incorporates as many visual, performing and interactive arts as possible at each show. Some shows incorporate all the arts listed herein, others have a reduced number of the various arts or may be focused on particular arts and themes.

The venues have very large spaces of 5000 - 55000sqft. or 5000sq meters.
