building the tower of sound

Ok, not a tower but an antenna. If you do not have satellite, even if you do have satellite radio, you better be listening to WFMU. A free form radio station that broadcasts out to the greater NYC area at 91.1 FM and online at The station is a registered 501©3 non-profit organization, runs no commercials or underwriting announcements and is almost entirely funded by listener donations. Long revered for its unorthodox and eclectic programming, WFMU celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.

The FCC granted them permission to erect a booster antenna in Manhattan, provided that work can be completed in 2009. In order to raise funds for our new antenna and to celebrate WFMU’s longstanding relationship with the arts community both in the New York area and beyond, the station will be holding an art benefit show at Printed Matter from December 6th to December 13th.

In addition to the editioned work currently for sale on this site, the show at Printed Matter will also include work for sale by the following artists:

Brian Alfred / Tauba Auerbach / Sarah Bedford / Nina Bovasso / Olaf Breuning / Tom Burkhardt / Ellie Curtis / Michael Dumontier & Neil Farber / Mitch Epstein / Jad Fair / Kyle Field / Matthieu Gafsou / Gelitin / Luis Gispert / Stuart Hawkins / Mark Warren Jacques / Chris Johanson* / Daniel Johnston / Mel Kadel / Mike Kelley / Terence Koh / Michael Krueger / Greg Lamarche / Christian Marclay / Richard Prince / Steve Powers / Andrea Robbins + Max Becher / Cindy Sherman / Casey Jex Smith / Geoffrey Todd Smith / Deb Sokolow / Swoon / Scott Teplin / Will Yackulic.
