Edition of 100

To coincide with his Art Unlimited project in Basel, BNKUDRWTR, Theaster Gates has created 'Bank Bond', an edition of 100 available for $5,000 to raise money towards the transformation of a near-derelict 1920s bank on the south side of Chicago into a thriving, cultural hub.
Gates says, 'With marble slabs pulled from the bank, its last usable currency, we hope to raise $500,000 towards the restoration of the building. This is part of a 3.5 million dollar campaign that I hope to complete within the construction period. It is an exciting opportunity for me to continue to act as an agent for creating space and a catalyst for re-imagining systems that support great artists and their work. The Art Bond will allow you to be a participant in the recreation of the space and secure your name on a marble wall as a founding contributor. I hope you will join me in making the South Side of Chicago sing again.'
