Statement on the J20 Art Strike

A statement from The Luminary's founders on why we will remain open during the inauguration on January 20th, 2017.

Lot 49 Artwork

The artwork for the inaugural Lot 49 Contemporary Art Auction + Benefit is now online! We are accepting bids and "buy it now" sales in advance of the event. If you are interested in bidding on or purchasing any of the pieces below, email with the artist, title of the piece and your bid. The buy it now option offers collectors an opportunity to purchase the piece outright at 110% of the list price.

All sales support both the artists, who receive 51% of the sales, and The Luminary's far-reaching programs.

I spent my residency in a very structured, patterned way roughly akin (the more I thought about it) to how I'd ideally spend every day.

It was with these measures of distance, metrics of time and space that I travelled from the UK to The Luminary to participate in the residency program.
