Special Ed and Friends Only

SPECIAL ED AND FRIENDS ONLY – see photos from the vernissage here

Ever wondered why certain artists make it onto exhibitions and some don’t?

Special Ed and Friends Only explores ways in which the artworld functions – through personal relations, networks, friendships, special interests and the like. Illustrative of this, curator Olga Stefan invited close friends to participate and by means of social networking, auctioned off a spot to an artist that made the strongest proposal for friendship. The winner’s identity is not revealed.

In addition to this, the curator’s relationship to artist-in-residence, Ed Young, is based on a mutual interest to expand professional networks. Just in time for Christmas, the commodification of relationships within the artworld is placed in discussion through a playful yet realistic process.

Ed Young invited one friend.
