AAMI Foundation is one of several entities, which are united under AAMI Corporation. The purpose and mission of this establishment is primarily to help young and evolving artists to present themselves at the art market and start making business with their talent and grit.
Because we are very familiar with the fact, that art is a tough business to succeed in, we have found several ways of helping artists and organisations, which are struggling to achieve a break-through in the art industry.

Free participation at AAMI exhibitons
Over the course of 4 years since Institute AAMI was founded, we have helped numerous artists present their talent at AAMI exhibitions in Slovenia and abroad – free of charge. As we know, exhibitions are probably the most dominant way of artist self-presentation and therefore we are occasionally helping selected artists to participate in exhibitions, which would often be too costly for them.
Free promotion in AAMI publications
Official exhibition catalogues are issued by Institute AAMI along with almost every exhibition and project, which we organize. Being published in a catalogue is a great way for artists to present themselves as well as their artworks to a wider audience. As Institute AAMI has started issuing a newspaper – AAMI Times, we will continue promoting selected artists there as well – free of charge of course. Until today, AAMI has published several presentations of aspiring artists in our publications as a sign of help and support.
Buying artworks for collection
Promotion and publishing is considered a Sysiphean task if it doesn`t lead to the main goal – sales of artworks. Therefore along with helping artists promote themselves, we are also buying their artworks, especially from the artists, where we see much potential and which we evaluate as prosperous. Until now, we have bought more than 200 artworks from AAMI artists, which we keep in Atelje Art Murn International private collection.
AAMI corporation charity
AAMI has been very active on the field of charity and humanitarian actions. We have been collaborating closely with the Rotary Clubs in Slovenia in the sense of printing and designing publications for their charity events and projects.
