DEMAND THAT THE FRIEZE NY ART FAIR GIVE 1% OF ITS REVENUE BACK TO ARTISTS AND ARTS ORGANIZATIONS IN EAST HARLEM & THE SOUTH BRONX
Frieze NY is a multi-million dollar annual art fair that takes place on Randall’s Island.
• Arts & Labor, an activist group that fights against economic inequality in the arts, has developed a community benefit agreement that demands Frieze NY give 1% of its revenue to artists & arts organizations in East Harlem and the South Bronx.
• Frieze’s stay on Randall’s Island will facilitate the exchange of millions of dollars in sales of contemporary art. We believe that Frieze has a responsibility to give back to the neighborhoods surrounding Randall’s Island to redress Frieze’s preclusion of recreational and other public uses on this land during its stay.
• On May 13, the Economic Development, Culture & Tourism Committee passed a resolution supporting the demand, providing that neighborhood representatives would take part in the distribution process for the money.
• On June 17, the full board will vote on whether to also support this resolution.
PACK THE CB11 MTG ON JUNE 17th TO SUPPORT THIS 1% COMMUNITY BENEFIT!
