“The Foundation supports the broadest spectrum of contemporary art practice in this country, from full-scale retrospectives at major institutions to the independent projects organized by members of Common Field. Common Field mobilizes and serves a woefully under-recognized community of experimental artists and creative instigators who are the life blood of the contemporary art world”
