About the 2010 Buffalo Infringement Festival
The Buffalo “Infringement” Festival is dedicated to the belief that art has a greater purpose than simply to entertain or simply to make a quick buck. Unfortunately, the modern-day arts world is increasingly degenerated by commercialism, elitism, and close-minded-ness. In this climate, the vast majority of art inevitably grows more and more toothless, perfunctory, and irrelevant. To counter this, we have undertaken to claw out a small niche where artists are free – both ideologically and financially – to create as they wish.
The BIF is a non-profit-driven, non-hierarchical grassroots endeavor bringing together a broad range of eclectic, independent, experimental, and controversial art of all forms. Taking place in multiple venues in and around Buffalo’s Allentown District, the festival is an annual eleven-day event running from the last weekend of July through the first weekend of August.
This event is organized by an ad-hoc committee whose members include (among others):
- Melissa Campbell
- Madeleine Cutrona
- Dave Pape
- International Infringement Festival
- Buffalo Infringement official website
- BIF’s Mission Statement
- BIF’s Facebook group
