Lawrence Weiner participates in Art for Black Lives platform
10 August 2020
A limited edition print by Lawrence Weiner is featured on Art for Black Lives, a new platform which allows artists to raise money for the Black Trans Community. All profits from this first round of editions will go to The Okra Project, a collective offering food, support and resources to Black Trans people worldwide.
In line with the group's aim to leverage the art market to redistribute resources to the Black Trans Community, each artist’s contribution is an extension of an existing exhibition of their work. This platform arose from conversations about the many ways in which current momentum in the anti-racist movement must become committed, ongoing engagement.
Lawrence Weiner's Stars Don’t Stand Still in the Sky for Anybody is featured alongside limited edition prints by Tiffany Alfonseca, Yves B. Golden, Hadi Fallahpisheh, Sean-Kierre Lyons, Bjarne Melgaard, Jill Mulleady, Amy Sillman, Davide Stucchi, Nora Turato, Puppies Puppies (Jade Kuriki Olivo) and Margaret Rose Vendryes.
