People who have saved this event:


Pump House Gallery presents A Modest Proposal (in a Black Box), an exhibition by Belgian artist duo Vermeir & Heiremans. Developed over the past two years, the new work investigates the possibility of financialising public art collections, museum real estate and symbolic capital.


In collaboration with financial sector workers, lawyers and academic researchers, the artists are developing a financial model, in which value generated by artistic practices is distributed more sustainably amongst all stakeholders.

Centered around this financial model, the exhibition invites us to consider the dynamics between art and the economy, and the value of culture in between. 

The exhibition is supported by Wandsworth Council, Arts Council England, Cockayne – Grants for the Arts and The London Community Foundation. Produced by JUBILEE vzw with the support of the Flemish Community and A/R asbl.
