Re: Should visual artists be paid for exhibitions?

The most important point is that artists are entitled to be paid for their work just the same as anybody else.

It's also important that not-for-profit and even charitable organisations are still businesses and often the people running them will be paid to do that job.

Ultimately it's up to individual artists to decide whether they either want to donate work to a specific even, either outright or as a loan or if a particular exhibition is a sufficiently worthwhile opportunity to sell work that it justifies waiving any fees.
