Purslane is a new art collective set on changing the art market from the bottom up — and in that spirit of bringing about systemic change, its debut show is highlighting and benefitting the Black Lives Matter movement.
Entitled “A DREAM IS NOT A DREAM”, the online-only show features works for sale from up-and-coming artists including Kim Booker, Chica Seal, Julie-Ann Simpson, Nancy Friedland, and more. A portion of the show’s proceeds will be going to the UK-based Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, an organisation that offers career training and resources for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Beginning on Thursday, July 9, the release of “A DREAM IS NOT A DREAM” will consist of three parts. The first part will be posted at 6 PM; from then on each subsequent part will be released on a weekly basis. If you can’t wait to see what these artists have in store, Purslane has been teasing some of the featured artists on its Instagram page. Each post details an individual artist who will have work for sale along with their work’s notable characteristics, also including some selections of their work to date.
