Artwork by Nick Relph for final week of 155 Freeman campaign

Unique color Xerox print
11 x 8.5 inches

Thanks to your generosity, we've already surpassed our fundraising goal, raising enough money to support our first year of programming at 155 Freeman! To keep up the momentum during our Kickstarter campaign's final week, artist Nick Relph has made a unique color Xerox print, which will appear in facsimile form on our “Greetings from Greenpoint” postcard, sent to those who pledge $10 or more.

An additional $20,000 would cover the costs of lighting, painting, and all remaining construction necessary to make the space ready for your first visit in September; we'd even be able to replace the dilapidated folding chairs, which you might remember from past screenings and performances, with new, much more comfortable seating.

Nick Relph was born in 1979 in London. His work deals with the representational problems inherent to different media. Relph's work was recently on view at Standard (Oslo); last year, he had solo shows at Gavin Brown's Enterprise and Overduin & Kite. His collaborations with Oliver Payne have appeared in group shows at the Museum of Modern Art (2007) and Tate Britain (2006). You can read an interview with Nick Relph at Triple Canopy.
