AOTps +AIR Spring Benefit 2015 The Architecture of Tomorrow Douglas Turner

Featuring a curated international collection of works from an A List of established and emerging artists, as well as private collections. A crowdfunding campaign will launch that day as well.

WILLIAMSBURG BROOKLYN, NY — The Architecture of Tomorrow Project Salon’s (AOTps) first benefit will happen on the evening of April 22, 2015 at 8pm at the Salon’s home in Williamsburg—159 Hope Street. The benefit will create the seed funding for an Artist-in-Residence Program in Williamsburg Brooklyn. Lottery tickets will be priced at an affordable $25 each and will also be available to purchase online. Buyers can purchase as many tickets as they wish for each individual work. Drawings will happen over the course of the evening. The lottery format presents the opportunity for new and seasoned collectors to obtain works from notable artists, for a steal! A crowdfunding campaign, with a goal of $20,000, will go live that evening. Created in 2014, The AOT Project Salon is an extension of Douglas Turner’s nurturing style of inquiry, thought provoking ideas, and engaging criticism known to populate the pages of his cultural digest, The Architecture of Tomorrow and other publications. Food, wine, and music by DJ Tikka Masala will round out what will surely be a fun evening of people coming together for a great cause.

Artists: Walter Robinson, James Romberger, MaxEstenger, Mary Jones, Steven Vannort, Vito Desalvo, Emily Weiskopf, Craig Watson, Jackie Rines, Ian James Carr, Melinda Hackett, Fred Duignan, Mike Drury, Larissa Nowicki, Corinne Innis, Sarah Blakley-Cartwright, Jody Morlock, Mariko Gianna de Vos, Josh Sachs, Xavier Basabe and works from private collections including a signed 1972 Salvador Dali Ready-made!  We hope to have an exhibition of 25 works. 

Select pieces will be for sale, including works by: Lucio Pozzi, Lorenza Sannai, and Ian James Carr.

About AOTps +AIR: The program will become a fiscally sponsored 501(c)(3) organization and will be open to artists at any stage of their career who are without studio space here in New York City. Studio space is at an astronomical premium across all Boroughs of New York City. AOTps +AIR believes this is an issue that requires compelling immediate action.
