WHEN SHIT HITS THE FAN AGAIN : FOR ARTISTS BY ARTISTS, 1 NIGHT ONLY.
50% of sales of works sold by an established artist, will be distributed entirely to all the emerging artists involved. This redistribution of wealth offers a new outlook and model.Fundamentally for artists, by artists.
Many art-related events, including Guts Gallery's, have either been cancelled or postponed, causing a large economic impact on artists globally. We want to continue to challenge this, putting our ethos of supporting underrepresented contemporary voices into action by navigating this set backyet again through a one night only digital Instagram exhibition.
Through the invitation extended to established artists into the exhibition. We are hoping to reinstate a balance of power. Allowing established artists to shoulder emerging artists. 50% of sales of works sold by an established artist, will be distributed entirely to all the emerging artists involved. This redistribution of wealth offers a new outlook and model that is fundamentally for artists, by artists, creating an alternative system of support.

“Together, we want to support and promote artists predominantly excluded from the traditional art market and who we feel have something to say. From the previous ‘When The Shit Hits The Fan’ exhibition back in March, when the lockdown first hit, Guts wanted to highlight the lack of spaces left open to exhibit and enjoy artwork, as the world was hit globally by the pandemic. Offering an immersive, digital, alternative exhibition. This time around, we wanted to focus on the impact the pandemic has had on the artists themselves; their livelihoods, their mental health, and their ability to survive and still create works in these challenging and unpredictable times”.
