Lauren van Haaften-Schick: Non-Participation

Art League Houston

November 20 - January 11, 2016

"Non-Participation is a collection of letters written by artists to decline invitations to participate in cultural events for various political or ethical reasons. These letters have been collected through an ongoing open call for submissions, complemented by historical research. Issues raised in these artists' letters include the non-payment of artists' fees, the denial of copyright ownership, censorship, and controversy over funding sources, among many others." Artists stand up!

November 20 - January 11, 2016

"By focusing on a monthly debt payment as a position of value, artists and viewers are asked to consider the fluctuating relationships of artists' time, development, creative production, exploration, community, and sustainability under increasing financial burdens." Read our two pieces on the show here and here.
