When Jugglers had a silent auction on February 3 of 99 works donated by 60 emerging and mid career artists [including represented artists Anthony Lister, Nic Plowman and Jan van Dijk and internationals Sofles, Gimiks Born, Miso and Ghostpatrol] the value was layered. All of a sudden there was the hope of “having a lister” for less than $1000! The night itself, while not without its bidding wars and dreams of investment potential was good natured and fun. 400 punters raised more than $7000 in three hours. That all 60 artists had put in the hours and then delivered them to Jugglers in support of a program for unknown “outsider” artists who are companioned towards more life and artistic possibilities is testament to generosity. The “Paper Girl” idea [on the same night at White Canvas] resonates with the same value. Give your art away! Buck the collector investment paradigm driven by white middle class white males! Works on paper were taken down after their Friday show and handed out in Queen Street Mall on Saturday. A shift is happening. The reign of the elite might last a while more but when amazing art is given to make a difference and amazing art is handed out to enrich the receivers, then Andy Warhol and his mates might return to join in!
