Tuesday, November 4, 2014, 7–9pm

Hyperallergic will ask artists how they economically sustain their practice while exploring new avenues outside the traditional market. Join us for a discussion about alternative economies with artists Linda Goode Bryant, McKendree Key, William Powhida, and Caroline Woolard at Kickstarter’s Greenpoint headquarters.
