Single and Looking
Single and Looking was organized using online dating sites to find single gay, straight, and bisexual men and women in Brooklyn who self-identify as artists on their dating profiles. Of the dozens of people invited to apply, the 8 artists selected for the show represent a wide range of artistic practices and styles.
At the closing party for the show, Saturday, March 16th, the artists will be available for speed-dating with the audience; all of the artwork on view will be up for sale in a silent auction format, as will dates with the artists themselves.
Investment in a work of art is often in reality an investment in the artwork’s creator. By exhibiting these artworks alongside the artist’s themselves, Single and Looking hopes to explore this blurred line between the social and commercial aspects of art, dating, and the marketplace.
