Artist fees in UK (and Ireland) public art institutions:

We've noticed that large institutions fail to disclose their artist fees and production budgets, stating that it's not in their 'commercial interest' to make this information public when asked for this data via FOI requests. We think it is in all our interests, as artists, to get a clear picture of where specific fees fit into wider structures.
The form is anonymous but all your answers will be collated and published on our website in due course.

Any data you are able to contribute will help to build up the information available in the public domain.

In order to protect artists anonymity, we will be scrambling the order of the answers and staggering their release on our website, so if you submit several exhibitions these will not appear in succession.
