In the world of art blogs the economic models are few and most have yet to be proven, but Art F City (AFC) is trying something new through a booth at this year’s Nada New York art fair, where the Brooklyn-based site and fellow Nectar Ad network cohort has decided to try their hand at selling art.

Stashed in the corner of the large Nada fair that opened today, AFC has curated a selection of 11 works by well-respected digital artists onto a sleek USB drive by Canadian-based designer and manufacturer of luxury mobile phones Mobiado — it is called AFC Selects.

The artists represented on AFC Selects are Anthony Antonellis, Jacob Ciocci, Paul B. Davis, Rollin Leonard, Sara Ludy, Lorna Mills, Shana Moulton, Jon Rafman, Rafael Rozendaal, Bunny Rogers, and Nicolas Sassoon. Some of these artists have long-standing relationships with AFC, like Jon Rafman, whose “Nine Eyes of Google” project was propelled onto the international stage after being featured on the blog’s IMG MGT series, while others, like Bunny Rogers, have never been featured on the site.
