As an alternative to the saying "you have to start somewhere", we must begin wherever we are is a truism from Gayatri Spivak's English translation of Jacques Derrida that has resonated with me ever since I first read it. Beginning wherever we are is beginning at the realistic point of a lack of consensus. Rather than nominating a single beneficiary organization for this exhibition, each artist was asked to name a non-profit to which 100% the proceeds of the sale of their work will go.
