by & for Ed. 2 | MIAMI
By & For Ed.2 | MIAMI is an Instagram-mediated artist relief auction for Miami-based artists curated by Luna Goldberg and Laura Novoa. In its second edition, sixteen original artworks will be on view on the By & For Instagram page and open for bids via the comment section or direct messages from 5pm EST on May 29 through 5pm EST on May 31.
Initiated by Chicago-based curator Pia Singh, By & For was conceived to raise funds to directly support local artists and maker communities affected by COVID-19. It brings creatives of all ages and varying levels of experience to build a collective sense of communal well-being and to create a more democratic and participatory experience for artists and audiences alike.
By & For invites artists to donate a work for auction, which is presented to the public in a live-bidding experience on Instagram for incremental bids of $50+ over a 48-hour period. All funds raised in the auction will be divided equally among participating artists at the closing of the auction.
The participating artists in By & For Ed.2 | MIAMI include: John William Bailly, Thomas Bils, Liene Bosquê, Jen Lynn Clay, Lucia Del Sanchez, Diego Gutierrez, Rhea Leonard, Philip Lique, Nick Mahshie, Laura Marsh, Mateo Nava, Alex Nuñez, William Osorio, Jennifer Printz, Nicole Salcedo, and Lauren Shapiro.
