Today we announce the launch of “The Writers’ Auction,” our fall benefit auction running on Paddle8 through October 23, 2014. The money raised will be used to take our two part-time writers on full-time—making it the most important auction we’ve launched to date. This means more resources to edit artist essays, in-depth interviews and reviews, and daily news coverage. This is flagship AFC content, and it’s the best art writing you’ll find anywhere on the web.

The op-ed pages at Art Fag City have never been more pointed. This year, we drew lines in the sand over Sotheby’s treatment of their art handlers, the never-ending dude centric art shows, and the gratuitous New York Times coverage of the rich. This is what Independent publishing looks like this —pointed criticism with real-world impact—but to keep doing it, we need your help. Your donations keep Art Fag City running.

This year, 100 percent of your donations will go directly towards paying the contributors who make this blog possible. If you’ve read something on this blog you’ve liked this year, if you’ve read something on this blog you’ve disliked this year, I urge you to consider donating. Opinions are valuable. We believe the world is a better place when there are more of them.

Your donation is 100 percent tax-deductible.

Fantastic fundraising news! We sold close to $2,500 in Bruce High Quality Foundation prints yesterday at 20×200.

These are excellent numbers […]
