Beautiful, exciting money.
Award winning curator Ivanna Getrich has determined 14 foolproof ways to get mega-rich, and in no time at all. Each method has been given to an artist to see how they respond to it, and these works are presented in this innovative exhibition.


Getrich uses her second-to-none knowledge of the emerging art scene in the UK to bring together some of the most talented artists working right now, into this one-of-a-kind exhibition that promises to enlighten you in the challenge of wealth accumulation.

1. Win the Lottery

Gamble a small amount of money, and there’s a chance you may receive a lot more in return. The odds must be in your favour though.

2. Move to America

It’s the land of the free, the American Dream, where anyone can become rich and successful. Flights from £199.

3. Become famous

Get yourself on the A-list, with or without talent. Persistence is probably to most important thing. And knowing the right people.

4. Follow an online scam

Such riches are promised by strangers all the time on the internet. It’s just so easy to make so much money, without ever leaving your home.

5. Print you own money

With a small investment in equipment you can set yourself up with a way to endlessly produce all the cash you could ever dream of.

6. Master alchemy

Learn the techniques of alchemy and you can create gold from simple base metals.

7. Marry someone rich

All you really need to do is charm someone who’s already done the hard work for you.

8. Invent something

The world needs new ideas, and ideas make money. You just need to have one, and you’re set.

9. Pretend

Just pretend you are. No-one will know any different, if you’re good enough at it.

10. Steal

Other people have more money than you. Take it.

11. Exploit a commodity

People want things, and will pay for them. All you need to do is position yourself between them, and take your cut. Oil is well known for making people a lot of money.

12. Exploit people

People need jobs, and they can do jobs which make you money. You don’t even need to do anything then, they will exploit the commodity for you, but you still keep the profits. Win-win.

13. Dream it

Close your eyes. Imagine you are at a cash machine. You tap in your pin number, and press “check balance”.

Let’s just say there’s a lot in there. Go spend it on whatever you like, or just enjoy the sight of all those zeros.

14. Lower your expectations

Wealth is subjective, so if what you consider as rich becomes significantly less, it is suddenly a lot easier to become rich.
