About Art for All

Art for All is a project that extends UNIQLO’s engagement with artists and accessible art products. Inspired by the artists Gilbert & George, who used the motto “Art for All” as their mission statement, the project documents the history of artists’ products from both artists who pioneered this medium and from an emerging artistic generation.

On January 20, Art for All launches in our New York flagship stores with a historical display of the art products created by the artists involved with the seminal 1980 Times Square Show and other art democratization activities. There will also be live screen-printing and an artist lecture over the course of the Art for All program. The mission of Art for All is to present artworks at an accessible location and at affordable prices so that everyone can participate in the art discourse.

About Jeffrey Deitch

A leading figure in New York’s contemporary art scene for over four decades, Deitch has built unparalleled knowledge and experience in his roles as promoter, curator, gallerist and writer. In 1980 Deitch helped to create The A. More Store in Soho, one of the first art products stores. At Deitch Projects, which operated from 1996 to 2010, he presented over 200 solo and thematic exhibitions and many public events. Deitch Projects was recognized as an incubator for careers of some of the most well-known artists of the past decade, including Cecily Brown, Barry McGee, Swoon and Tauba Auerbach.

In addition to its gallery exhibitions, Deitch Projects was known for its performance program and public events like the Art Parade. The gallery’s program is documented in Live the Art: Fifteen Years of Deitch Projects, published by Rizzoli in 2014. Deitch closed the gallery in 2010 to become Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and during his three years at MOCA, he presented 50 exhibitions and projects including The Painting Factory and Art in the Streets, which had the highest attendance in the museum’s history. Deitch also initiated the first museum YouTube channel, MOCA TV. Deitch reopened his New York gallery in 2016. He continues to support young artists while also presenting exhibitions by more established artists like Ai Weiwei.
