2023 Artists

BUTTER is a multi-day fine art fair that centers and elevates Black artists. The cultural infrastructure for artists is lacking, and the roadmap to career advancement and financial sustainability has been unclear. BUTTER aims to change this. BUTTER invites guests to see and experience contemporary art in new ways, all while advocating for the value and worth of Black artists. The fair was created by GANGGANG to test a new model for reparations in the arts, with a focus on care, authenticity, and economic justice. In just three years, BUTTER has made a bright impact on Indianapolis and beyond. By returning 100% of artwork sales back to the artists, the fair is an experiment in elevating standards across the art industry and the economic viability of being an artist.

The goal of selling every artwork in this exhibition not only supports creatives financially, but cements our belief in their talent, future, and the future of the ecosystem.
