Critical Art Ensemble Benefit

On November 23rd, A Space Gallery will host a gala art auction in support of Steven Kurtz, founder of the internationally acclaimed art group Critical Art Ensemble. The CAE Defense Committee is currently $90 000 short of being able to pay the artists’ legal bills, and $200 000 short of the funds necessary to bring expert witnesses to Buffalo to testify on their behalf.

Naomi Klein will provide the keynote address, and will also read from her bestselling new book "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise Of Disaster Capitalism." An auction of artwork follows, including works by John Abrams, Ed Burtynsky, John Greyson, Freda Guttman, Johanna Householder, Istvan Kantor, Micah Lexier, Ken Lum, Ed Pien, Jin-me Yoon and many others.
