What if artists toured like rock bands?
These kids have come up with a very unique way to exhibit their art. By undermining the authority of the art space, they've managed to get one night gigs across the country. Self Made Artists are on tour this summer and Wednesday, June 20th, they stop in Atlanta. The show will be at Youngblood Gallery from 7-10. I think that everybody should come out and support this very cool strategy that brings widespread marketing back to the real world rather than over the web.
"Self Made is a small group of visual artists which have banded together to present art dislocated from location, time, and institutions. Artists have lost the power to create culture to a large bureaucratic system of galleries, museums, and biennials, and it is our intention to give the public an alternative to these institutions."
