Blank Forms is pleased to present When Sun Comes Out, our first benefit exhibition including works by over 40 artists, nearly all of whom are collaborators or friends of the organization. Taking its title from Sun Ra’s 1963 album, for which a rare silkscreened cover designed by Claude Dangerfield is among the works on offer, the exhibition refers back to Blank Forms’ first gala in 2017 honoring Marshall Allen and the Sun Ra Arkestra, and also looks to the future with hope for sunnier days of music, celebration, and performance.


2020 has been a catastrophic year for the arts, and the performing arts in particular, so we thank you for considering this crucial fundraising initiative. All sales will be split with the artists and the proceeds that go to Blank Forms will help fund future performances, publications, and archival initiatives.
