This December over $20,000 was successfully raised on Kickstarter to fund the creation of a collaborative project between Flawless Sabrina, Zackary Drucker, and Diana Tourjee called Flawless Sabrina Archive!
The support for FSA has so far been overwhelming and we are thrilled to find funding to start this important work. The archive is essentially a collection of Flawless Sabrina's lifework, it is a series of photographs, written works, paintings, sculptures, films, ephemera, and music that illustrate the significance of Flawless Sabrina as an early trans archetype, and herald of progress in the underground of art and politics
Our immediate priority is to get the incredible incentives that were so generously donated out to donors. We will be sending these books, t-shirts, prints, and more in the coming weeks - so look for a package from FSA coming your way if you donated and picked a prize!
We'd like to thank each and every person who contributed in one way or another to this project's creation. By sharing this campaign with your circles, donating, and speaking up in support of what we're doing - you have helped give life to something that will continue shaping and enlightening culture for years to come. The many artists who put forth their work as incentives in this fundraiser helped show us why community is crucial in this endeavor.
The blog of Flawless-Sabrina.com will be the journal of FSA's progress in the coming weeks and months. We will use this space to share with you our progress, keeping you up-to-date and us all connected as this keeps growing. We have big goals and look forward to having you with us as we rise toward them. You're also able to subscribe to our mailing list at the bottom of this website to be kept directly in-the-know moving forward.
We have found a wonderful law firm to take us on pro-bono and are currently in the process of incorporating FSA as a Non-Profit Organization. Initial paperwork is being filed this week, we're meeting with the lawyer on Friday 1/2/15 - starting off the New Year right!! Thanks - we look forward to talking again soon! Stay FLAWLESS!
Flawless Sabrina Archive Mission Statement
The mission of Flawless Sabrina Archive is to preserve the lifework of Flawless Sabrina as a resource for artists, activists, and scholars. The research and documentation conducted by FSA will be used to incite intergenerational discourse for the benefit of current movements in the arts and politics. The collection will be regularly shown and made available to the public. It is the foundation of the organization’s expanding scope, inspiring future projects in order to continue the work of our namesake indefinitely. Flawless Sabrina Archive resides at the convergence of the past and present in countercultural subject matter, enriching society through the documentation of history and the empowerment of difference.
The archive includes film, sculpture, writing, photography, painting, and music. Much, but not all of these works were produced by Flawless Sabrina. Some are by other notable artists who she has collaborated with. John Waters, Norman Mailer, William Burroughs, Andy Warhol, and Diane Arbus are some of Flawless Sabrina’s contemporaries whose collaborative work is found in this archive. FSA also includes a significant amount of work by modern artists such as Luke Gilford, Wu Tsang, Michelle Handelman, Zackary Drucker, and Curtis Carman. Together, their work provides additional context for Flawless Sabrina as an influential and important figure in the second half of the twentieth century and into the 21st.
