The young artist has fingers in many pies.

Nowadays, the freshly Graduated must be everywhere, taking odd jobs, performing on the street, dumpster diving or seducing the bank teller. Art, as a work of passion and dedication, falls into the strange limbo of belonging both everywhere and nowhere. Socially the artist performs a living, supports an art practice, sustains a studio space, and many more.

In the ocean of precarity, how do artists paddle above the waterline?

Like strays, A Finger in Every Pie explores the intertwined relationship of the artist within society: in the context of turbo-capitalism scenarios, and noteworthy 2020.
