Commonwealth and Council

Through the challenges and uncertainties of 2020, we had generative conversations with our family of artists, rerooting ourselves in the values of generosity, hospitality and collective flourishing upon which the gallery was founded ten years ago, in a one-bedroom apartment on Commonwealth Avenue and Council Street. We recommitted ourselves to visioning a gallery that can be a community, platform, and laboratory for ambitious, radical art—in myriad forms including education and public projects—championing minoritarian voices, and building a support structure that subverts the winner-take-all star system often found in the art world. The Council Fund is one of the initiatives that emerged from these conversations. We asked our supporters if they might consider contributing some (or all) of the customary discounts extended to a discretionary fund that would support needs outside of the traditional scope of the gallery. The artists would decide together how to allocate the monies: discussions thus far have prioritized making sure all artists have health insurance, providing aid for personal emergencies, and supporting non-commercial ambitious projects.

Thank you for supporting our Council Fund.
