Amidst the current uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are looking to shift the focus away from currency (as being the only form of value) and recentre the artwork’s value through the process of exchange. The logic behind bartering, a form of exchange that preceded the invention of money, is simple: You have something I need, I have something you need, and we trade. The barter system allows you to negotiate the worth of your object or service in relation to products or services that you want. This formula has always resonated within the art community, where carving out innovative ways to sustain creative production is a must. As an exhibition “X-Change” not only becomes a site specific exchange but also an interactive piece as the process of exchange shifts the interaction between the buyer, the artwork and the artist.
