bar-fund, 2014 – Ongoing

bar-fund is a proposal for an LA-based artist grant whose funds are generated through the accumulation of small tips given by the public at the bars of LA-based art openings and events. It is an attempt to create a horizontal grant building initiative that involves the local community and is offered as an alternative to the top-down approach of most grant infrastructures. Open discussions are occasionally held at Los Angeles Contemporary Archive to discuss bar-fund and brainstorm other ideas for community funded artist grants. For more information, visit LACA.
