Selling It

From September 19-23, 2012 the Hyde Park Art Center hosted “Selling It” at EXPO CHGO.  “Selling It” provided representation for artists who have created socially engaged work from across the country at the fair exploring of the place and role of socially engaged art in a market system.

Who and what is represented and how if the work is not primarily by nature object based? How can these practices be financially viable? Are there alternate funding sources to support this kind of work that can come from the market system? How are artists, participants and collaborators compensated, or not?

Represented artists and projects included at Expo:

Harrell Fletcher
Lee Walton
Lori Gordon
Ariana Jacob
Crystal Baxley
Songs on Conceptual Art
