This step — part of a comprehensive program of support for local artists, undertaken by the special Museum Department emergency response to the needs of the art-сообщества

On the platform of the Museum of contemporary art Detroit (MOCAD), launched March 27, will showcase the work of selected artists, based in Detroit. The money for the sold work, the Museum and the artists will be divided in half. The delivery of the works sold, the buyers will decide. It is planned that until the end of April, the circle presented on the website of the authors will be limited to only local artists, but from may to them can join and other interested persons. To publish the work on the Museum's website, the artist must obtain the prior approval of the management MOCAD, sending a sample of his work on the curatorial Board.

In an interview with ARTnews chief curator and Executive Director of MOCAD elision Borovi-Ридер said that the idea for this project arose last week, when the Museum staff was thinking about possible ways to support artists affected by restrictions on their activities in connection with the spread of the virus COVID-19. The phrase "they need to pay rent," became one of the most often repeated during the meetings of representatives of various departments of the Museum, who believes that if artists lose their studios and the opportunity to work, "then the community will not be able to continue to exist", — added Borovi-Ридер. And the proposed Museum online-площадка for sales of works by artists can provide them the opportunity to make extra money in this difficult time.
