Earlier this week Michael Mazzeo Gallery launched RSVP, an online exhibition space Mazzeo created to give exhibition and print sales opportunities to a greater number of photographers than he can feature in his physical gallery. RSVP shows are curated through an open call for work based on a particular theme. Submissions and inclusion in the exhibitions and print-on-demand catalogues are free, and artists who sell prints through RSVP receive 70 percent of sales. Says Mazzeo, “I am not asking photographers to produce additional, cheaper editions of their work to sell at discounted prices. I’m only interested in getting them the fair market price for their existing editioned prints.” The initial show, Arbor, features work by 52 artists, including Richard Renaldi, Yong Hee Kim, Christopher Rauschenberg, Karen Glaser, Amanda Friedman and Ian Aleksander Adams.
