The Amateurs are a New York City art collective dedicated to
promoting amateurism of all kinds. We believe that art is too
important to leave to the artists.
The Amateurs make urban folk art using recycled materials. Our work
is site-specific and engages with public spaces and people outside
the art world. It is interactive, open to anyone, and teeming with
joy and primary experience.
We are self-trained. We have no idea what we’re doing.
