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. Numerous times, AAMI has participated with our artworks at charity auctions or events, organized by Rotary clubs, Lions clubs, Rotaract clubs, Interact clubs, Bled Water festival etc. We have donated artworks to ABC Accelerator, Toronto Business Academy, Embassy of Kazakhstan in Vienna, Embassy of Japan in Ljubljana, Embassy of Venezuela in Ljubljana, TIA Summit Bangalore, Slovenian consulate in Netherlands, Šestka shopping centre in Prague, The Trump Organisation, Slovene Philanthropy… AAMI Corporation is encouraging our team members and members of our clubs (Botticelli and Salvador club) to engage and join charity and humanitarian organizations as well as civil initiatives. Some of them are: Mentoring programme Learn from the best (Institute Ypsilon), Global Shapers Hub (The World Economic Forum) and The United Nations Association of Slovenia – World Federation of United Nations Associations…
Two of our important goals are supporting young artists and helping them on their path to becoming established artists. AAMI is therefore collecting donations from natural and legal persons. Donations will be used for providing full scholarships to young, talented artists for courses and programmes at one of the art schools abroad, focusing on Paris College of Art, Design and Fashion school in Venice and University of the Arts London. If you would like to show your support to our artists and contribute to their artistic career, please contact us at [email protected]
AAMI art rental
AAMI offers an option of artwork rental to legal persons. You can rent artworks from our private collection to enrich your events, decorate walls in your offices and conference rooms and thus elevate the atmosphere in your working environment. With art rental, you will show your interest beyond your own niche to your employees and customers and will be able to redesign your business areas every few months with original artworks.
AAMI private collection
AAMI is inviting artists to submit their art and become part of the AAMI private collection. We will evaluate applied artworks and offer you compensation (possible compensations: exhibiting at one of our exhibitions free of charge; promotion in AAMI publications; use of AAMI Underground units or other compensation by agreement with the artist). The AAMI private collection is available for rent and therefore brings additional promotion to the artist. If you would like to apply your artwork for evaluation, please send us a photo of your artwork along with the estimated price and your contact information.
»Helping others and achieving goals with united strengths is an important necessity in today’s world. A lot of artists can find themselves in front of a barrier, which might be too high for them to overcome, despite the fact that they possess an enormous amount of potential and passion. I am looking forward to see the results we will achieve with AAMI Foundation. We want to find, guide and support artists who have a clear goal ahead of them, but need help on their way to get there.«
