Congratulations to the artists selected by our guest curators the TAX Collection for the February/March 2018 edition. 

The TAX Collection is a New York based multi-media platform for artists, galleries and creatives. The organization has been featured in Forbes, Vogue Italy, Nylon Korea and more.  

"The TAX Collection is a multi-modal creative platform aimed at revolutionizing the way popular culture interacts within producer-consumer, artist-audience, and creator-user relationships. Culture stagnates around specific icons and imagery for no apparent reason; it simply just does. The general public has been duped, allowing themselves to be misled into subscribing to industry set standards and trends. Durkheim explains that anything can be considered sacred through the act of setting it apart. We pose the rhetorical question, ‘Who says?’ Sacred things are not set apart because they are special; sacred things are special because they are set apart. Just as in popular culture, trends dominate consumer desire and, in turn, creators and artists are tailored to design what the consumer considers trendy - stifling artistic freedom of expression."
