Support Gorky's Granddaughter IndiGoGo fundraising drive

Since 2009, artists Christopher Joy and Zachary Keeting have interviewed artists in their studios, posting over 200 videos of these encounters on their Gorky's Granddaughter site. These videos are smart, informative, often funny, warm, engaging. They are currently pursuing a crowd sourcing campaign on IndieGoGo to enable them to expand their efforts.

From their appeal:

We (Chris Joy and Zach Keeting) established Gorky's Granddaughter in 2009 as a way to engage in and intensify artistic discourse. Through making video documents of working artists and publishing them on the web, Gorky's has established a large and dedicated audience of artists, art-world practitioners, collectors, and art lovers.

By providing access to artists in their personal studios, we create a safe space for intimate and in-depth conversations that don't happen anywhere else. Both intensely focused and refreshingly informal, our conversations get to the heart of artists' thoughts as well as the complex meanings that surround the work they show us.

In a sense, we see ourselves as creating a visual, living version of long-form catalogue essays in an engaging, accessible, and entertaining format.

Please consider contributing to this very worthwhile project.
