ARTstor is digitizing and will distribute more than 100,000 images from Larry Quall’ unique archive of contemporary art images. For nearly three decades, Larry Qualls has been documenting contemporary art exhibitions at galleries and other exhibition spaces throughout New York City and elsewhere.
The archive is being scanned and made available systematically, beginning with the more recent gallery shows. Accordingly, the first releases of images included works of art shown during the Winter 2002, Spring 2001, Fall 2001, Spring 2000 and Fall 2000 gallery seasons. This current release of over 4,000 images covers the Fall 1999 and Spring 2000 exhibition season and brings the total number of available Qualls images to over 16,000. Subsequent releases in ARTstor will document earlier and more current gallery seasons and will be released as they are cataloged by Larry Qualls.
Because of copyright considerations, only images of works by artists represented by artists’ rights groups with which ARTstor has existing agreements — the Artists Rights Society (ARS), the Société des auteurs dans les arts graphiques et plastiques (ADAGP) and the Visual Arts and Galleries Association (VAGA) — or with individual artists with whom ARTstor has reached agreements, may be made available internationally. ARTstor expects that vast majority of the Larry Qualls archive will be made available in the United States.
