Songzhuang International Photo Biennale Co-Funding Choices

Three pieces of my artwork have been accepted into the Songzhuang International Photo Biennale located in the town of Songzhuang on the outskirts of Beijing. https://szipb.org/ The biennale is part of the Songzhuang international art festival that started in 2005. Songzhuang has an interesting history. In the 80’s artists started to leave Beijing to the outlying farm villages to start up their studios. Today Songzhuang has become the largest artist community in the world, more than 8,000 artists live in this biggest art community and also including curators/directors, critics, artists, writers and poets. https://szipb.org/about/.  To save on costs, the curators of the biennale are printing works on Epson archival paper and matting and framing. This will save on shipping and any customs costs. The artists pick up the cost of printing, matting and framing. The artists also share in some of the costs for web design and minimal labor costs since much of the work is with contract artists in the area. In addition, they are publishing a beautiful catalogue https://szipb.org/exhibition-catalogue/ and as a participating artists I will be included in the catalogue.

I am looking to raise funds to pay for the image printing and framing, artists contribution to the installation and the cost of two catalogues. The total amount I am looking to raise $800 – $1,000.  In consideration for your generous Co-Funding, I am offering the following.

$125 – 17”x22” digital print on Archival Paper with Epson Ultrachrome archival ink. It would be one of the three images of your choice in the biennale exhibition. Images would be signed and dated.
$300 – 3 17”x22” digital prints on Archival Paper with Epson Ultrachrome archival ink. It would be all three images in the biennale exhibition. Images would be signed and dated.
$500 – 3 17”x22” digital prints on Archival Paper with Epson Ultrachrome archival ink. It would be all three images in the biennale exhibition. Images would be signed and dated. Also, one of the two beautifully printed and bound catalogues https://szipb.org/exhibition-catalogue/

If you would like to donate a lesser amount to this Co-Funding, I appreciate your generous gift.
