“I’ve created this Kickstarter campaign to experiment with new form of art exhibition and approach to selling work. I’ve asked 11 artists to create new works that fit into the Kickstarter format. In response, they have each designed a custom artwork through online retailers in editions of 10, and assigned a value for these mediated works.
Throughout the course of this campaign, I’ll be interviewing the artists, educators, writers, and other interested parties about where the art world stands today–both as an institution and a means of livelihood–and how crowd-funding may continue to impact the economy of artistic practice.
Opening October 11th, the culmination of this project will be presented at Ditch Projects, a gallery in Springfield, Oregon. The physical exhibition will display a single edition of each artwork, as well as the video documentation.” (From the project Kickstarter page).
