What is art worth? - How to get a Fashion Interactions artwork
Wednesday, December 11, 2013 at 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 66 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10003
15% is a performative installation addressing the global fashion system: an industry interconnected with both human and ecological systems. The installation creates a production line in a gallery. A performer, working on the production line, makes white t-shirts. The whole process, from cutting the fabric to ironing the final product, is put on display. Each shirt is numbered, the off-cut waste is packed boutique-style and the shirts prepared for retail – as a by-product of the waste.
To get your very own shirt you must follow these steps:
1. You donate a sum of money to a charity and receive a receipt for it.
2. You show us the receipt in person (as part of Step 3).
3. You pick up a part of the artwork (we the artists choose the part you receive) from the Aronson Gallery, at 66 Fifth Avenue, on Wednesday December 11, between 12:00-6:00 p.m. Acquired artworks or parts of them may not be returned under any circumstances.
Note: Your charitable donation does not guarantee that you will receive a part of artwork as the artwork may run out. There is no such thing as wasted charity.
Artwork will not be sent out; you must pick it up in person or have someone pick it up for you, from the above stated location at the above stated time, with your receipt.
