Join Franklin Furnace today, and help us extend our global reach by making
the world safe for avant-garde artists who ply both real and virtual space to bring
their art to you. In 2008-09, Franklin Furnace is supporting events by eleven artists whose
works explore such issues as dictatorship, pressures surrounding marriage, ethnicity and cultural
difference, confinement and public space, mental and physical limits of the body, and more.
