After moving to Paris to reconnect with her passion for art, Kiki Somerville concluded that art told the story of the world, and thus belonged to the world— except she was troubled by how few people held the paintbrush. Determined to re-allocate some of what has now become a $65 billion industry, Somerville founded The Fearless Artist and made it her mission to level the playing field and open the art market to creatives with talent and ambition who haven’t historically had access to buyers. Now a graduate student in the Corcoran School’s MFA in Social Practice program, she launched The Fearless Artist’s Young Curators Program to help younger artists get their work seen, shared and sold.
