Beautiful work up for auction from Last Rites Gallery collaborating artists. All at a steal (so far) and for a good cause.
About The Project:
Believing that creativity is a vital force for all of humanity, Last Rites Gallery supports ICAF in funding art programs for children across the world. Last Rites owner, Paul Booth, has raised thousands of dollars for ICAF since his first involvement with them in 2008, and founded The Art Fusion Experiment as a means of benefitting charities and connecting artists worldwide. The Art Fusion Experiment demonstrates through collaborative painting, contemporary artist’s ability to work together as a community.
In this spirit of sharing & global community, Last Rites is has hosted a large-scale collaborative painting project, the results of which are being auctioned off for charity.
Fifteen artists around the world received 24” x 30” canvas panels to sketch using pencil/ charcoal/ ink in order to design and lay the groundwork for a finished painting. The panels were then sent back to Last Rites for a select group of artists to collaboratively paint & finalize.
The project is a mash-up of the heaviest hitters in the realms of fine art, tattooing and illustration some of them familiar faces at Last Rites, as well as special guests. The event has enabled some of the most talented artists around globe to work together for the first time… and for a good cause!

NYFA’s Curatorial Program Presents:
A Feminist Tea Party
Monday, April 11 – Friday, April 15, 2011
Free and open to the public
NYFA is pleased to announce A Feminist Tea Party, a week-long residency event presented through NYFA’s Curatorial Program.
A Feminist Tea Party at NYFA is Caitlin Rueter and Suzanne Stroebe’s first solo exhibition for their collaborative project A Feminist Tea Party. A Feminist Tea Party lies somewhere between a performance, an installation and a participatory event. Rueter and Stroebe will be welcoming guests for tea, sweets and informal conversation daily in the NYFA Gallery from 12 noon until 5 o’clock during the week of April 11th, 2011.
Provoked by the Tea Party protests, A Feminist Tea Party recasts the “tea party” as a playful, progressive, inquisitive and inclusive space. At its inception, the project was only meant to last for an afternoon. It has now continued for over a year, and is constantly re-imagined as it finds new audiences, spaces, and participants.
Stroebe and Rueter revisit the consciousness-raising groups of the 1970′s in the set of a midcentury tea party. Rather than recreating the exclusive environment of the historical consciousness-raising groups, or the homogeneous scene typical of the historical tea party, they include a wider cast of discussants, conflating the past and present to create an environment where essential and discomfiting issues can be discussed freely and with a sense of humor.
Each day a different co-host or team of co-hosts will introduce a discussion or event, engaging guests in casual conversation surrounding a topic related to feminism that they have chosen for this space. Please see below for a schedule.
Everyone is welcome to participate regardless of your gender, your political persuasion or
Schedule of events:
Monday April 11, 2-4pm
Tuesday April 12, 2-4pm
Wednesday April 13, 4:30-6pm
Thursday April 14, 2-4pm
Friday April 15, time TBA
