Franklin Furnace was founded in 1976 by artist Martha Wilson, to champion ephemeral forms neglected by mainstream arts institutions. Franklin Furnace's mission is to present, preserve, interpret, proselytize and advocate on behalf of avant-garde art, especially forms that may be vulnerable due to institutional neglect, their ephemeral nature, or politically unpopular content. The organization has developed a place in art history for artists' books, temporary installation art, and performance art. Most profoundly, Franklin Furnace has had an indelible impact upon art by launching the careers of artists whose work has influenced art and cultural discourse in these country.
