Since the late 60’s artists such as Adrian Piper, Lawrence Weiner, Bruce Nauman, and Felix Gonzales Torres have produced artworks made for free public distribution.   Such conceptual artworks were early attempts to undermine the commodification of art by extending accessibility of art ownership to a greater audience. Cost effective distribution determined these forms into text based, art as document multiples, and like forms of public paper, were sold to collectors with the mandate to continue the circulation of the gift. In the spirit of the gift, these are a collection of free artworks I have made in the last few years.
