Exchange Rates

Shared spaces and cultural currencies. Currencies tangible and intangible.
Variable valuations of the same.

Conceived and produced by arts organizations helmed by artists and curators in Bushwick, Brooklyn and London, England, Exchange Rates—known also in this inaugural iteration as The Bushwick Expo—is an international exposition of artworks and curatorial programs in which host spaces in one art community open their doors and share their walls with kindred spaces on visit from elsewhere.

Some exhibits will be integrated, some collaborative yet autonomous, some even spontaneous or virtual.
The rates of exchange, as such, will fluctuate, while the currencies of exchange—ideas and culture—remain fixed.

Visit one space to visit several. Visit Bushwick to get a glimpse of aesthetic endeavors both here and in a dozen other cities.

Come to Exchange Rates for a creative breath of fresh air.

It is an exposition, to wit. Not a fair.

  • Organised by Fixing The Future
  • Practices of negation often operate by considering the entrenched structures of an existing system. However, in Contemporary Art, negational practices, such as Institutional Critique, seem to have been absorbed - while largely leaving power relations intact. Looking to constructive approaches towards the development of institutions and models of the future, how viable are practices of negation today? What theoretical and practical resources might they yet offer to an art world addicted to the power and fast-cash of an exploitative capitalism which remakes it in its own image?

  • Before and during the expo

    In the months preceding Exchange Rates a series of interviews with the collaborating galleries will be undertaken. The questions will explore ideas of collaboration, cohabitation, hosting, visiting, gravitation, etc. The interviews will be released on Fungiculture's website during the period leading up to the Expo. Fungiculture will also lead short guided tours during the Expo. The guided tour will be an exercise in charting the network that Exchange Rates has generated, as well as a physical performance of the process of creating networks and conversations.
