Project Description In this performance, Reinsch makes art on demand. Reinsch equipped the gallery to create paintings, drawings, sculptures, and performances. His salesperson offered viewers a selection of time increments to choose from with corresponding dollar amounts. Reinsch created art for the allotted time. For example, $5 for one minutes; $50 for 10 min; $100 for 20 min; or up to $6,000 for a one-month project (long-term projects will be completed outside the gallery). The produced artwork remains on display in the gallery for the duration of the show. Patrons will be presented with their purchase at the end of the show.
If no one made a purchase and in between sales, Reinsch simply stood there. He will again be making work on demand at our next opening on March 17th 6 - 9pm.
