Exploring the place of money in our world through different artistic lenses.

About

Money Talks will reveal how currency and art come together in design and culture to promote or challenge our views. It will feature works by some of the best-known artists, from Rembrandt to Warhol. Most of the imagery on our currency begins its life as art, before being mass produced on coins and notes. It has a dramatic impact on what and who we imagine is valuable. Money itself is a popular theme in art – artists have long explored and commented upon the balance between power, wealth and plenitude through using money artistically in novel ways.
