Human Jukebox

For my contribution to this art exhibition and fundraiser (see description below), I performed karaoke live via the internet for a small fee.


From the Telic website

In the 30 days between June 21 and July 21, a different artist (almost) each day will use Telicís gallery to make money. This is both an exhibition and a fundraiser -- the artists are conceiving installations, performances, lectures, and other schemes; and the money they earn is split 25/75 with Telic (an inverse of the typical non-profit commission).

Although arts organizations and artists spend a lot of time thinking about money, it is an issue thatís largely absent from our programming, and artistic practice in general. This exhibition, however, will bring private financial concerns to the front, into the aesthetic experience of the gallery space.
