Brian Belott (b. 1973, East Orange, New Jersey) lives and works in Brooklyn. The artist is represented by Gavin Brown’s enterprise, New York, where he also co-curated “Goulding the Lolly” in 2016; Moran Bondaroff, Los Angeles; and LOYAL, Stockholm. In anticipation of Performa 17, the artist and Jens Hoffmann, curator of the project, held a Dada-esque absurdist fundraiser of Belott’s works, in tribute to Tony Conrad and Jack Smith’s 1963 protest, outside the entrances of several New York museums over the course of a Sunday, with works priced at five cents and up.
