Foundation for Contemporary Arts (FCA), a non-profit arts organization founded in 1963 by Jasper Johns and John Cage that provides grants to artists and arts organizations, announces its 13th benefit exhibition opening December 9, 2010. Organized by artists Cecily Brown, Vija Celmins, Rachel Feinstein, Robert Gober, Jasper Johns, Julian Lethbridge, Nate Lowman, Brice Marden, Julie Mehretu, James Rosenquist, Dana Schutz, Kara Walker and T.J. Wilcox, the “Painting and Sculpture” exhibition will feature nearly 200 artworks available for sale (not auction). Proceeds will directly benefit FCA’s grant programs.

Founded and guided by artists, FCA has long been supported by a large community of artists who have generously donated their work to be sold in FCA’s twelve historic benefit exhibitions. Art dealers have shown their support by hosting FCA’s enormous, salon-style exhibitions, where one is likely to find a work by Ed Ruscha next to a work by an emerging talent. This latest benefit exhibition will be held at Lehmann Maupin’s stunning Lower East Side gallery which opened in late 2007, heralding a burgeoning contemporary art scene in The Bowery.

Paintings and sculptures (and a small number of works on paper) by established and mid-career artists will be installed alongside work by emerging artists. In addition to works by organizing committee artists, work by many well known artists will be featured. A list of participating artists can be found on FCA’s website. FCA has traditionally held sales, not auctions of work, in exhibitions that are open to the public for an extended period of time.

Foundation for Contemporary Arts encourages, sponsors and promotes innovative work in the arts created and presented by individuals, groups and organizations. Through a nomination process, artists working in dance, music/sound, performance art/theater, poetry and the visual arts are awarded unrestricted grants for projects of their own choosing. Grants are also given to presenting and support organizations and a modest fund is maintained to help artists with unexpected emergencies. Over 900 artists have donated work to raise funds for FCA’s grant programs. Since its inception, FCA has granted over 7 USD million to support individual artists and arts organizations. In 2010, FCA will award over 500,000 USD in grants.
