Ends in 12 days
Closed Today (Tuesday)

As part of Transmitter’s commitment to strengthening and supporting organizations that champion racial, social, and environmental equity we have started a new donation-based program as an ongoing effort to serve not-for-profit organizations.

This benefit program will feature a selection of works from artists we know and admire, and the profits from each sale will be donated to an organization with a core mission of advancing equity and justice, with a portion also going back to the artist contributing work. As an ongoing program, we will work with a new organization every 6 months. Our inaugural group of artists in this program will contribute half of all proceeds from sales to G.L.I.T.S., an organization that advocates for human rights and inclusion of transgender people, with specific focus on the health, safety, and social justice needs of transgender sex workers.

In addition to promoting this program on our website and social media platforms (where sales can be made remotely), we will be marking the start of this benefit program with a physical exhibition of all the contributions.

As a collective of artists and curators, Transmitter (both as a group and individually) is committed to promoting racial and social justice in whatever capacity we can. We acknowledge the ancestral and living stewards of the Lenapehoking lands on which we organize, create, and live. We acknowledge our own ancestors and history of colonialism, slavery, and genocide. We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and pledge to follow in this ongoing and urgent fight.

We are incredibly excited to promote the work of the contributing artists and hope you will both visit the gallery, or our online platform, and consider supporting G.L.I.T.S. via a purchase of one of the included artworks. For more information about the important work G.L.I.T.S. does please visit their website: https://www.glitsinc.org/

Artists include: Jessica Alazraki, Kalyn Barnoski, Elle Burchill, Amarise Carreras, Ricardo Cabret, Jon Elliott, Molly Haynes, Lauren Howie, J Houston, Gilbert Hsiao, Aleem Hurst, Ian Lewandowski, Matthew Mahler, Andrea Monti, Rachelle Mozman, Cong-Tam Nguyen, Marianna Peragallo, Miller Robinson, Andrea Santos, Shahrzad Changalvaee, Ana Weider-Blank.
