A few fundraiser related notes:

  • We have extended our fall campaign for Independence to November 18th so everyone has a chance to donate. At this point, we have 80 backers and only $5,400 to raise. Just imagine if a donor purchased that tattoo we made available on Michael Anthony Farley’s butt for $5000! We’d be only $400 away from meeting our goal. Help us make this happen! There are plenty of perks to choose from – many of which are disappearing quick in the final days of this fundraiser. [Indiegogo]
  • Meet us at The Cue Art Foundation for their annual gala and benefit auction. Cue offers artists exhibitions, art education programs and young writer support. We like all three. It’s our first time attending a benefit by this organization so we can’t wait to see what they do.[Cue Art Foundation]
  • NURTUREart will hold my favorite benefit of the year next week, November 9th and 10th! I like this benefit because it’s filled with cool, down to earth people who are super excited about art. Every time I’ve visited people can’t stop talking about the art they’ve picked up. The fundraiser helps the artist community exhibition space pay their bills for the year, so it’s super important for them too. Support them today! [NURTUREart]

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.

Help us liberate you.

Donate on our Indiegogo page and receive fabulous thank-you gifts: Matthew Barney Lip Balm, studio visits, limited-edition artwork, and much more!

THE YEAR: 2015. Museum funding is dominated by oil companies and rapists. 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.

But on the road toward this dystopian future, there is hope. October 6th, we launch the resistance: The Art F City Fall Fundraiser for Independence. Today, we ask for your early support. Your donations help us get this party started!
