All the work in the show will be on sale to purchase, however none will be available for money. Instead the artists have chosen other tradable currencies, this could be a house, a horse or a cheese pasty.

About

Castlefield Gallery is pleased to present its next Launch Pad exhibition An Exchange of Sorts, curated by CG Associates member Will Marshall. The exhibition was selected Dr Michael Birchall, Senior Lecturer in Exhibition Studies at Liverpool John Moores University and Curator of Public Practice at Tate Liverpool, and Castlefield Gallery’s Curator Matthew Pendergast, from submissions by CG Associates. The exhibition will include work by Connor Brazier, Robyn Nichol, Sid & Jim, Emily Simpson, and wannamarchi.club.

An Exchange of Sorts presents new work made in response to Marshall’s invitation to consider the concept of ‘exchange’, particularly in relation to the production and exhibiting of art. The five artists were asked to look at the various elements involved in ‘exchanges’, such as money, materials, time, art, exposure, favours and labour.

All the work in the show will be on sale to purchase, however none will be available for money. Instead the artists have chosen other tradable currencies, which they feel represents a fair exchange for an original artwork. This could be a house, a horse or a cheese pasty.
