The moment you’ve been waiting for has arrived: the revolution has begun. There’s hope on the horizon for independent voices, artist-run spaces, and emerging artists. Corrupt institutions, the forces of art-world-evil, and counter-revolutionary art press face a new challenge to their regime: our Fall Fundraiser is live.

THE YEAR: 2015. Museum funding is dominated by oil companies and predatory sitcom stars. Commercial galleries are overrun by unwashed hordes of celebrity-driven exhibitions, and universities are giving out honorary doctorates to these same people. Rampant gentrification has caused artist-run galleries to Escape From New York. Art publications are gobbling each other up into monopolies like zombies hungry for brains. Press releases for retrospectives include statements like “Inspiration and innovation equally power Volkswagen Group of America on the road toward the future.”
But on the road toward this dystopian future, there is hope. Fiercely independent, relentlessly critical, and tirelessly fighting for truth and justice: the warriors of Art F City have pledged to defend artists and their audiences from the decline of civilization. But we need your help. We need to pay our writers and take Art F City to the next level. In the barren wastelands of arts funding, only the strong survive.
