ARTFORUM AD PROJECT
Call for participation
HOW IT WORKS
The ARTFORUM AD PROJECT, a conceptual artwork by artist Jeff Thompson, allows for 4,200 artists to have their work seen in Artforum magazine.
Each participant, paying $1.50 USD and sending their image electronically, will then have their piece, along with all the other participating artists, in a full-page advertisement. Of course, due to the number of artists needed to raise the money for this venture, the images themselves will be quite small… about 3/16" x 3/16". Artists make a secure payment of $1.50 using PayPal and send an image of their work. The image is shrunk to the 3/16". When $4,200 is raised, the ad is sent to Artforum to be published.
The final advertisement and all participating artists will be listed on the project website after publication.
NO ONE IS MAKING MONEY ON THIS PROJECT
..WELL, EXCEPT ARTFORUM
The $1.50 artists are charged goes 100% to getting their image in Artforum.
The price of a full-page ad is $4,200. PayPal takes $0.30 on each transaction, plus a small percentage of the sale price and, depending on location, a currency conversion fee. Therefore, the total price of the
image is $1.50.
