This coming weekend, freeform radio station WFMU hosts an art benefit show and sale to raise funds for the construction of a new radio booster antenna in Manhattan, a project for which the FCC had granted permission to the Jersey City based station last year. Regularly broadcasting non-commercial original programming, WFMU celebrates its long standing relationship with the visual arts community with this exhibition and sale, bringing together a notable list of established producers who have created or donated and, in many cases, greatly reduced the prices of their works in order to encourage sales. All of the work shown will be available for purchase. The event offers an opportunity to support one of the most exciting and advanced platforms for creative radio making operating today, both online and off. Interestingly, all of the works exhibited will be offered for sale at fixed prices, offered explicitly by way of a non-auction sale structure, intended to allow easy entry to first time art buyers. In addition to an opening event at Printed Matter on the evening of 6 December, the ongoing exhibition will continue through 13 December at the store. A parallel online sale will feature art exclusive to web buyers, and will be accessible at after 6 December 2008.

Participating artists include Richard Prince, Olaf Breuning, Cindy Sherman, Andrea Robbins and Max Becher, Mike Kelley, Gelitin, Chris Johanson, Christian Marclay, Steve Powers, Swoon, Tom Burkhardt and many others.
