I am putting together an art show for exhibition next month. It is called "A Fan's Notes"; and it is an homage to football and art.
I have a show scheduled for exhibition from November, 17th until January 5th at Steven Wolf Fine Arts Gallery, in San Francisco. The work will be a combination of video, photo, painting, sculpture, performance, installation & sculpture. It is an ambitious amount of work because it is about the enthusiasm of fandom...about being a fan of art and a fan of football. These worlds almost never overlap, but I am bringing them together for this show.
In order to produce everything in such a short period of time, I will either Kickstart the momentum with some fundraising, or find a way to go into debt. This work belongs in the world. With the world's help, I will put the show together and also be able to have a good old fashioned tailgate party at the gallery for all who can attend....the best of both worlds!
Regardless of your contribution, all are welcome. And it will be fun! Thanks for checking this out! Check out stevenwolffinearts.com for more info about the show and what else goes on there.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
My main challenge is funding.
This is one of those times when I can not do it all myself. Some aspects of this project need to be executed by other professional artists, in particular, a photographer and videographer. I am contracting a photographer to photograph me in a series of actions that I will play out 'using the ball as a prop' in a series about 'excessive celebration.' In a separate piece, I am also contracting a videographer to shoot my performance reenactment of "Paper Break Through,'' by Murakami Saburo, of the Gutai Group, while carrying a football and wearing a football helmet.
Although I am asking friends and colleagues to help capture the work, I do need to pay them something for their time, efforts, and use of their equipment. Unfortunately, they most likely won't be able to accept credit cards, and I simply don't have the cash on hand. This is the main challenge. Everything else is squarely within my grasp.
