The International Society of Experimental Artists (ISEA) is a global organization with approximately 500 members, offering a society that celebrates the creation of art through innovation and experimentation.
"Artists working in an experimental manner need a society where they can share ideas and techniques – both old and new and encourage the development of new talents and skills. There is a need to connect, encourage, inform and promote artists who create art by experimentation and exploration. We need new ways to make statements through our art and provide a forum to exhibit our work."
ISEA was founded in 1991 by Maxine Masterfield and Gracie Hegeman. They felt constrained by the rules that were in place for art exhibits of other leading national and international artists’ groups. Maxine and Gracie wanted to create an organization that celebrated experimentation and exploration and provided a way to share ideas and information.
