Features and benefits

By being part of the UA Access Membership, artists can be invited to integrate into our gallery, stay informed about its events, and gain insights into an innovative approach within the realm of commercial contemporary art galleries.

Thanks to our exclusive online platform and IRL events, you will engage with a diverse online community of artists, curators, critics, art educators, and gallerists from around the world in an environment conducive to exchanging and sharing experiences.

Exhibition Opportunities

Participate in one curated group show annually. Enjoy the privilege to propose for group exhibitions and receive invaluable feedback.


One distinctive feature of the UA Access Membership lies in its close connection to the UA Gallery. As a participant, you can submit proposals for our group shows and receive valuable feedback, making it an enticing opportunity for artists.

UA Gallery ≠ UA Access

The UA Access Membership and UA Gallery Association are interconnected but represent DIFFERENT TYPES of participation.
