A "personal ads" section for artists, curators, musicians, writers, etc. This is where we can start to make things happen. If you have an idea, but need some help getting it off the ground, post here to recruit collaborators, lock down venues, and scout out locations for events near you. Feel free to include your name, location and contact information in your comments — the only people who have access to this forum are those already signed on to the project.

Examples: "Land artist in Texas needs location for something. Independent curator in Chicago looking for local space for photography exhibit. Artist collective in Australia wants to collaborate with similar groups in the U.S. and Europe."

This thread is a space for Extraction Art participants to introduce themselves, talk about their work, engage in theoretical discussion, kick around project ideas, and generally share content or thoughts with others involved in the project. Comment below to get the discussion started.

This is a forum for Extraction artists, writers, curators, venues, musicians, advisors and so on to reach out to one another, to facilitate collaboration and communication between far-flung Extractionistas, the world over. This is a locked, private page on the Extraction site. Only Extraction Participants will be allowed access to the forum.

If you have an idea for the Extraction project, this page can be your sounding board for brainstorming. If you have a proposal for an exhibition or event, but need to recruit artists or consult with other participants from different areas of expertise in order to make it happen, this page is your “Extraction Classifieds” section. You can post comments in the individual threads set up on this page. If you have an idea for a new thread, you can email Sam at to get it set up. This is your opportunity to have your voice heard in the shaping of the Extraction project, moving forward to 2021.
