art barter

Sunday is the last day of Art Barter London, an exhibition curated by Lauren Jones and Alix Janta, in hopes to deconstruct the hype, pretence and terrifying prices often associated with big art names, and which can often taint the appreciation of the art itself. At this show, money is useless. Buyers have to barter for art – making offers of whatever they want, based purely on the works’ aesthetic value, as buyers will have no idea who created each piece until after the show ends and their offers are in.

Artists selling their art through this bartering system include well-known names such as Tracey Emin, Gavin Turk, Mat Collishaw, Gary Hume, Abigail Lane, Polly Morgan, Boo Saville, Abigail Fallis and Paul Fryer.

Barter Fair on Sunday will feature young designers, ceramists, and jewelry designers. Barter on site -- bring items to exchange!
