ABOUT ALTERIA ART
Created in 2012 by Lauren Jones and Alix Janta-Polczynski, Alteria Art is an art organisation with a two-fold core mission: to support young and emerging talents and to champion a more open access to art making and collecting.
Alteria Art aims to implement those goals, working closely with both established and emerging contemporary artists through an eclectic mix of projects. These range from worldwide Art Barter events, to charitable projects such as The Artists’ Colouring Book of ABC’s; giving artists studio time to learn new skills and produce limited edition prints, curating solo and group exhibitions across international locations and being a conduit for collaboration between inspirational people across all creative fields.
Alix Janta-Polczynski and Lauren Jones started working together in 2009 when they launched the original Art Barter event in London. Alix is an independent curator and is the co-founder of photo publishing company Adad Books with Ines de Bordas. Lauren, also an independent curator, works with James Putnam as an artist liaison on their independent projects and for the University of the Arts, London.
