no soul for sale

no soul for sale X initiative, new york june 24 – june 28, 2009

the ‘no soul for sale’ festival opens today as part of the X initiative, taking place in between their phase 1 and phase 2 programming. the festival will bring together 30 art centers, institutions and collectives from all around the world to present themselves, their programs and artists. each group will have their own exhibition space in the X building and use of a performance area on the main floor for one-hour. the unusual program will feature all the exhibitors right next to one another, with assigned spaces only marked on the floor, in hopes of abolishing distances and hierarchies.  groups will be coming from berlin, milan, dublin, barcelona, paris, reykjavТk, hong kong, rabat, trinidad, new york, los angeles and many other locations.

mexico city-based artist martin soto climent will orchestrate a performative sculpture with the assistance of the public at tonight’s opening. ‘impulsive chorus’ will be built entirely from beer cans consumed during the reception. almost all the participants created posters for the event, shown here.
