WHERE: X Initiative, 548 West 22 St, New York.

Held at X (old DIA center)from June 24 to June 28, NO SOUL FOR SALE – A FESTIVAL OF INDEPENDENTS will bring together some of the most interesting not-for-profit art spaces from around the world. NO SOUL FOR SALE will be a gathering of the most exciting, innovative and respected not-for-profit centers, alternative institutions, artists’ collectives and independent enterprises that are contributing to the international art scene by inventing new strategies of distribution and aggregation. X has invited up to 40 not-for-profit art spaces from around the world. Not a fair nor an exhibition, NO SOUL FOR SALE is a convention of individuals and groups that have devoted their energies to keeping art alive. NO SOUL FOR SALE wants to be an exercise in coexistence: organizations will exhibit next to each other without partitions or walls. The Festival aims at emphasizing a creative, imaginative setting by simply marking each space on the floor: as in Lars von Trier’s Dogville, the bare setting will only consist of painted outlines across the floor – neighbors and colleagues, friends and enemies will have to contend for space and attention. The festival will celebrate the spontaneity and energy of these groups and individuals – it will be a gathering of free radicals, stray dogs, and other unreasonable people. Each organization will come at its own expense.
