On or about February 20, 2010, Jen Dalton & William Powhida transformed Winkleman Gallery, NYC into a think tank for approximately one month, complete with blackboards, work tables, beer*, coffee-makers* and a mini-fridge*. They invited a bunch of awesome artists, educators, curators, critics, art-lowers/haterz, ect ect and active participation in this project - including me!

Our goal was to find answers to such questions as:

*Is contemporary art a luxury commodity for the wealthy that limits the possibility of ownership, understanding, and access based on class, education and geography? If so, why exactly is that a problem?

*Why do people keep making art (or writing about it, or showing it, or caring about it) even when they don’t ever earn any money from it?

*When/if artists do manage to earn some money from their work, why does it sometimes make them feel queasy to sell their art to wealthy collectors?

* What are some possible viable alternatives or modifications to the current commercial art market system? What’s wrong with Capitalism? Isn’t it great!?

* Ect, Ect.
