Crossing Brooklyn ArtTalks: Alternative Economies
Tuesday, November 4, 2014, 7–9pm
Kickstarter, 58 Kent Street, Greenpoint, Brooklyn
New York is expensive, and although the art market is booming, sales tend to benefit the art world 1% more than anybody else. 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.
Tickets are free, but limited, and available at hyperallergic25.eventbrite.com.

This event will be live-streamed at new.livestream.com/LivestreamPublic.
