In the 30 days between June 21 and July 21, a different artist (almost) each day will use TELIC’s gallery to make money. This is both an exhibition and a fundraiser - the artists are conceiving installations, performances, lectures, and other schemes; and the money they earn is split 25/75 with TELIC (an inverse of the typical non-profit commission).
Although arts organizations and artists spend a lot of time thinking about money, it is an issue that’s largely absent from our programming, and artistic practice in general. This exhibition, however, will bring private financial concerns to the front, into the aesthetic experience of the gallery space.
Even if you are unable to make it to the show, we hope you’ll consider making a tax-deductible donation at http://2003-2008.telic.info/donate

AAAARG.ORG will also present a conversation at TELIC about Art & Work, which will take shape at http://aaaarg.org/category/art-and-work.
