What is ‘be contemporary/Art’?
Specialising in contemporary art, photography (and design too). We understand that some of our artists have many cross-overs they are artists are from around the world; some established; others emerging; re-emerging and some starting out. Working with a select yet diverse set of artists is key to our practice. We like to work with curators; gallerists; writers; and property and design specialists collaboratively. BCA’s focus is eclectic, currently working with artists in contemporary African Art; abstract and pop art; diasporan art; works inspired by movement; music; abstraction; politics; and more . .
How do we do it? Leveraging opportunities and possibilities offered by open media and new technologies. We devise strategies for access to works of art and engagement with it in novel ways. We facilitate a process of engagement with our artists and their work.
What does that mean in practice? Promotion and trade at fairs; online and mobile platforms; pop-up exhibition, placement of art in property; and, licensing content across a number of platforms. Including, licensing for interiors and exteriors; media; film and other interesting outlets.
How, where and who you’ll work with?

Artists who license?
Our content licensing service offers initial advice around what and how you license; and, for what return. Work with BCA and its associates to develop collections you can license out in ways you might not have yet considered. The point is we help you identify a range of possible licensees; negotiate terms and put flexible and workable agreements in place, ensuring they work well for all involved.
