The Organizers

Jennifer Dalton and William Powhida have worked together in collaboration since 2008, while maintaining their individual art practices. Both artists' work focuses on their personal and professional relationships to the art world and society. They began working together in 2008 during the financial crisis and their first collaborative project was a set of satirical recession-themed condolence cards. This initial project gave way to more exhaustive inquiry into the art market system. In 2010 they organized #Class, a month-long series of discussions, performance and events on the themes of hierarchies, access and power, uncurated via an open call at Winkleman Gallery.  Dalton and Powhida continued the discussion with #Rank at a satellite fair during the Miami art fairs.  They then presented “The Failure Desk” where they hosted anonymous small-scale focus groups at Lu Magnus Projects in New York. Subsequently, they were two of the members of FIPCA, a satirical artist collective inspired by Occupy Wall Street, which produced an all-day variety show “Telethon for the 1%.”  Month 2 Month marks the first collaboration for the artists since 2012.  

“Bottom line: artists are artists’ best friends, and there should be more gatherings like this one”
