One of Institute AAMI’s main activities is promoting and representing artists on the art and business market. We offer our clients a chance to make new business acquaintances, present themselves in the media, seize new opportunities and market their best products. By doing so, we are actualising our belief that art can be turned into a profitable business as well. Since we organize activities such as exhibitions and events in several parts of the world, this offers our clients a wide range of choices for their promotion. Besides exhibitions, artists also have the chance of presenting and selling their work as part of AAMI commission sale. Authors from different art branches are all invited to collaborate with us, especially visual and performing artists. We want to present all of the artists at their best and that is why our selection of artists is based on the topic of event and the benefits it brings to both sides.
We offer professional photography services according to customer’s wishes. Institute AAMI collaborates with more than 15 different photographers which are members of our Salvador club, and are providing a top-notch service on all fields of photography, including event photography, studio photography, product photography, portraiture, corporate photography, etc. Our partner in professional studio photography is the company Mega-Graf with more than 25 years of experience.

One of the main goals of our activities is filling empty or vacant areas with art. That includes spaces such as shops, warehouses, lobbies, hallways and such, which we transform to temporary cultural areas with minimal investment, with the attempt to minimize or discard any bad promotion for the owner of the building. We adapt the concept and the contextual scheme to the current state of the space and do not invest excessively in redesigning it. We primarily organize cultural events such as exhibitions, presentations, lectures, travelogues, workshops, courses, meetings, etc. This way, we acquire the exhibition spaces where we can perform our activities and offer our artists a bigger range of possibilities for their presentation. However, we can also use the space for other events that are not directly linked to culture, for example organizing business meetings, networking events, product presentations and showrooms.
We provide the service of interior design, including arrangement and assembling of space, complete renovation of interior, decoration and fixture of the place including artwork placement. We also decorate business spaces such as offices, lobbies and hallways with artworks, most commonly paintings, statues or installations. This way, Institute AAMI gains more exhibition space and better opportunities for promoting artists. The renter or the owner gains an artistically decorated space. All of the exhibited artworks are always available for sale. Every artwork comes with a plate with artist`s name, artwork title and price. When we organize exhibitions in business spaces, we always issue a brochure with information about the exhibited art and participating artists.
Large part of our services consists of promotion, appraisals and sales of artworks and antiques. We offer the organization, execution and consulting on the field of art sales. At Institute AAMI, sale of artworks is conducted of commission prepaid sales, meaning, upon paying the organizational fee, the total selling price of the sold artwork belongs to the author. The sale is possible through AAMI exhibitions, events, social media and website exposure, as well as through AAMI commission sale of artworks which are kept at AAMI facilities for a certain amount of time.
