Modeling itself after various forms of impromptu, transient, rogue and temporary sites of commerce, BTHCBFFS is a short-term project where artists will present their recent multi-disciplinary work in a sympathetic environment open to buyers, browsers, detectives, and government officials. The show attempts to examine the ways artists can interface with the economy, the art-world, and the marketplace in the windswept recessional of 2009. Circuit City becomes HALLOWEEN CITY. If you walk around you are bound to find something good.
