Sell Out

Exploring the way art is valued and the art buying habits of the public, Sell Out existed as a performative and interactive exhibition with the act of obtaining as loaded as the works themselves. Instead of individually purchasable works with prices reflecting complexity, depth or production costs, all 54 works relating to  the perception of value and legacy and were $40 and assigned to the purchaser by chance using a classic signifier of low stakes gambling; the bingo turner.

This construct created an exciting and slightly uneasy exchange wherein art was so obtainable as to elicit a reaction and a conversation. Sell Out was also an investigation into how I value my own work, knowing that the works I created could equally be treasured or disregarded by the people who receive them.
