Blood for Art - Sunday, August 10 th 10 am - 4pm
In cooperation with the American Red Cross, Quorum will present a
simple proposition to the public: a pint of blood for an original
print by one of thirteen artists. By asking people contribute a
small, but explicit quantity of themselves, and offering donors a piece
of art in return, we aremore than acting out a mechanical barter,
we're asking "How are you willing to spend your blood ?"
To sign up in advance for blood drive, log on to www.givelife.org and enter LIMN as the sponsor
Quorum is a collective of San Francisco Bay Area
artists, curators, writers, and art dealers dedicated to generating
arts discourse, and transforming that dialogue into action. Past projects include "Blood for Art" at SCOPE Miami and "Code Switching" at Swarm Gallery in Oakland, CA.
