Introducing Live Art Aid 

Home Live Art and artist Richard DeDomenici plan to put the fun back into fundraising with an irreverent and mischievous Christmas crowd-funding campaign!

Following on from his highly successful performance for the BBC’s Live From Television Centre, Richard has made his own version of a charity single, which can be downloaded or bought as a limited edition vinyl.4 minutes long and made with the help of 20 artists, Live Art Aid aims to explain what live art is to the tune of Do They Know It’s Christmas but played backwards!

Here’s the serious bit – We’ve seen a substantial reduction in arts funding over the last 5 years, and the independent, self-employed artist has been hit the most. If you’ve been to a Home Live Art event then you’ve probably met quite a few independent artists – maybe you’ve been to our Alternative Village Fete? Competed in Swivolympics? Or sung in a scratch choir?

The fact is it’s becoming increasingly difficult for independent artists to sustain themselves, so the idea behind this campaign is very simple; it won’t make artists rich or change their world but it will support their daily business of being an artist. We want to raise £4000. This means the 20 artists who helped make the single will each receive £200. They can then use this funding to support their work – put it towards hiring rehearsal space, an airfare to participate in an international festival or 2 or 3 train fares to have meetings with prospective venues or curators who will present their work in the future. We are not suggesting artists can make do on little but we are saying that even a modest amount can help support their next project. And please be assured we are not undermining all the important charitable causes in the wider public sphere, all of which are crucial.

Our Live Art Aid campaign, as you can tell, is very much tongue in cheek and in the spirit of all Richard’s work which pokes fun at the world around us. As a follower of Home Live Art we hope you have enjoyed the projects and events we have presented over the years but more importantly the artists who have created them. Help us help them so they can continue to offer great art! It’s so simple – visit our Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign and give what ever you can! Many ThanksThe Home Live Art team

An artist talk from Art Quest:

2-4pmVenue: Block 336, 336 Brixton Road,

Beyond the selling of work, galleries also play an important role in validating and endorsing the practice of the artists that they show. So, given that galleries are still largely used to dealing with sellable and exhibitable objects, and the art market in particular has had many problems with non-object based or community practice, what are the options available to artists whose practice might sit outside the gallery circuit? How would the model of the gallery need to be re-imagined to accommodate and represent this ever increasing approach to producing art?With contributions from Kirsty Ogg ­and Marijke Steedman.   Part of the System Failure talks series
