Artist Contract Negotiation

In case you are a visual artist and need top-notch business advice, you can rely on our Artists Contract Negotiation service. The Art Plug creative advertising agency is headquartered in Miami, but we have been working with numerous local and international clients over the past years. 

If you want to avoid having a bad experience, we always advise having a contract for every project and every client. However, the details tend to usually slip through the cracks, especially if you are not a skilled negotiator, business savvy or you simply don’t know what a fair contract should include.

Our artist contract negotiation experts will be there to ensure that the entire process of creating and signing a contract passes hassle-free. You will not have to worry about the technicalities, because our experienced team will take care of everything and make sure your needs and requirements are met.


What Contract Includes And Why Do You Need One?

If you want to work with brands and you want to earn a fair fee for your artwork, you will need a contract. It puts in writing everything that was agreed between you and the company hiring you, so both parties can review it before starting a project. Both sides must comply with everything that was written before continuing further. We can help you review the contract that someone offered you, suggest which aspects can be improved, and represent you during the negotiation with your potential collaborator.

A contract is a document that can protect all parties by avoiding misunderstandings, and serving as a paper trail if anything goes wrong. It outlines what you will provide to the clients, terms, and conditions under which you will perform your job, and what you will get in return. Its main purpose is to define the responsibilities, set the scope of work, deadlines, limitations, and contingencies in case of unexpected changes. 

Because of that, it is very important to sign a contract before starting a business in order to ensure your earnings, prevent any legal problems and to be sure that you will be protected no matter what happens. 


What Does Our Artist Contract Negotiation Process Include?

Every contract negotiation starts with the preparation of a list of questions, as well as reviewing provisions that you will probably see in your contract. Whether you are negotiating for gallery representation, or you want to exhibit your pieces of art at a different location, we will be there to make sure that the terms and conditions of the contract are clear and respected by both parties. 

In case that a gallery represents you, we will ask them to describe what they will do on their part and what they expect from you as an artist. It is also important to know if that relationship is exclusive, or can you show your work to other galleries as well. 

We will discuss the duration of the relationship, and make sure that the contract includes the “escape clause” whenever possible. This clause will allow you to break it in case you are not satisfied with the way they are promoting you, or if certain conditions are not met. We will make sure that earnings from sales are clearly defined.
