Grimes’ art is the subject of a new online exhibition titled Selling Out, Bloomberg News reports. She’ll be selling drawings, prints, photographs, and conceptual pieces in the show, which is hosted by Gallery Platform Los Angeles (from May 28–June 3) and Maccarone Los Angeles (May 28–August 31).
The most notable piece in the collection is a conceptual piece, also called Selling Out, that finds Grimes selling part of her soul for the “best offer.” A press release from Maccarone clarifies:
Selling Out, a conceptual artwork that lends its title to the exhibition, is the culmination of Grimes’ holistic art practice. It expands upon the conceit of partitioning and re-administering one’s identity, whose art is their soul. Selling Out is executed as a contract in which Grimes sells a fraction of her soul, formalizing the idea that every time an artist sells a piece of their art, part of the soul is sold with it. The purchaser will enter into a contractual agreement that outlines the terms of ownership and ultimately the connection to the joy of artistic expression.
