There is a new campaign that aims to expose the relationship between economic inequality in the art market and the growing debt burden that artists carry.
"Debtfair" is run by Occupy Museums and 516 ARTS. New Mexico-based artists are being "invited to collectively exhibit their artwork within the context of their economic realities."
The open call process is now open and the submission information can be found on this website. The selected artwork will be for sale, but in an usual way. Works will be sold in groups, the same way that debts are often sold. The proceeds from each batch will be divided between the artists in the batch.
Once you've had a chance to look through the information, join us in our Facebook Group. Is this something that you'd be interested in? Tell us why you feel as you do!
