Filter/Border, an Instagram Exhibition at Creative Loafing Space/Tempus

The call for this show can be found here [Link]. CL/Tempus is charging a la rent-a-wall, $20 for the first work, and $5 for subsequent entries from the same artist, plus... 40% commission. It is easy to understand the desperation many local galleries are facing, given the current economy. Creative Loafing is not one of them.

I have refused to review rent-a-wall galleries from the beginning, since they are essentially cattle calls for art, resulting in disjointed agglutinations of disparate work. Most rent-a-walls, like ARTpool, charge per work, then zero commission. In this case, specially for that first work, the artist is being charged for both.
