January 15 to February 15, 2018, Counterpath will host an exhibit of art from Target and IKEA. This is an open invitation to either donate, place on loan, or attempt to re-sell art work purchased at Target or IKEA, perhaps representing an opportunity to break into the art market and develop a curatorial resume. Given that all work will pass through the Counterpath gallery context, art will sell at a markup from store pricing of at least 150%. All proceeds will be returned to the art’s original purchaser, less the standard 50% gallery fee (please see our sample contract below). Counterpath will also have a selection of art on view purchased directly from Target and IKEA.

The length of the exhibition will be 31 days or whatever the full-refund return time-frame is for Target and IKEA. We need to receive anything to be included by January 15 please, and please include a c. 100 word description of each piece to be used as wall text.
