Collaborations > Debtfair

Debtfair at Art League Houston brought together 66 Texas artists in an exhibition representing 3.3 million dollars in collective debt. Through an online application process and open submission, participating artists shared details of their economic realities with Debtfair organizers. Using this information, artworks were organized in collective bundles representing shared realities among the artists:

• Indebtedness to a financial institution
• Identifies as professional artist; works multiple jobs for financial reasons
• Represented by a gallery and maintains debt
• Uses the words "stress," "anxiety" and/or fear to describe how debt makes them feel

Debtfair Art League Houston is a collaborative project with Tal Beery, Imani Jacqueline Brown, Noah Fischer, Kenneth Pietrobono and Arthur Polendo
