Friday, April 2, 1999, Dissentia Curatorial Services rolled out their
newest offering, art2u. The curators, Nick Cassway and Chris Macan-Wilson,
installed the work of nine artists in a rental truck. This one-night mobile
gallery opened on the streets of Olde City, Philadelphia.
Services’ founding principal is that art should be a democratic
experience; everyone should have access to it and everyone should be able
to own it. In an attempt to make art appreciation and acquisition an affordable
experience, the curators requested that the work, all created by professional
artists, be sold for $50 or less.
