Friday, December 9
@ The Dollar Art House
Open Houses on Sunday, December 11 and Sunday, December 18 from 4:30 to 8:30pm
The Dollar Art House Sells Out is a fire sale of art (by Adam Turl and Craig E. Ross) and a concert with music, sound art and poetry curated by Jesa D'Or and Sunni Hutton. Come out and support working-class artists, poets and musicians.
Admittance: $10 suggested donation for reception/performances (to be split among the performers and house). No one will be turned away. Admittance to open houses are free. But we'll take donations then if you feel like it.
Perfunctory Statement: "The Dollar Art House invites you to our end of the year show, concert and fundraiser, Dollar Art House Sells Out. While we are anti-capitalist we are also artists who sell their work. We believe, notable exceptions aside, that categorically opposing the sale of artwork is something of a petit-bourgeois conceit. Artists have to eat, pay the rent, buy clothes, etc. An art world in which art pretends it is not for sale will tend to be an art world made up of relatively privileged artists. At the same time, we think art should be made affordable to working-class patrons. The narrowing of the art producer and audience both reduce and minimize the content of work. This narrow band explains the dull echoes of minimalism that too often adorn the walls of our museums and galleries."
