SOLO ART EXHIBITION FUNDING 2022
I'm trying to raise funds to have my first solo art exhibition this year, 2022.
I'm currently working on the project for this solo show at the moment, but my funds are low since my job cut my hours to less than part time. So, I've been surviving off of my savings which I'm trying to avoid doing by selling my art, applying for grants and actively seeking a part time job.
Sad story and struggle artist life aside, I'm still eager to get this project going since I feel I'm at the stage in my art career where I'm confident in having a solo show.
This art exhibition will be called "Inner Dialogue," which is about having one on one conversations with myself and what that looks like. This project will include some self portrait photographs, drawings, video performance, sound art as well as an art installation.
I completed the photographs for this project, now I'm trying to raise funds for the sculptures, installations and performance portion.
At the moment I'm working on fine tuning the sound piece which I'll be collaborating with a saxophonist from DC. This part of the project will be a performance video as well where I will play my flute alongside the saxophonist with voice overs of my poems.
At the moment I'm trying to print the photographs and because they are large sizes, the smallest being 30"x20" and the largest being 50"x40", I can't cover the whole printing nor framing fees.
This funding will aid me in purchasing supplies to create the art installation which will be interactive wooden built room with fabric and a mirror, further conveying the message of this exhibition as a whole. Besides that, the funding will also aid in renting out a space for the performance video, getting a space to showcase this exhibition, and cover marketing costs.
I'd appreciate any amount of donation because they will add up and help me to complete this project altogether–this will be a great opportunity for you as sponsors and donors to invest in this project as well as see where your money goes by experiencing the exhibition live.
