Art&Swap, the most original art show from Belgium in Argentina

1:21 PM Sandra Gutrejde 0 Comments

ART&SWAP is the art exhibition where works are exchanged for goods or services. A genuine invitation to dialogue for artists from Belgium and Argentina.

This original event comes from Brussels, Belgium, where it is known as Art Truc Troc. Their organizers have decided to replicate the proposal in Argentina with the name of Art&Swap, under the curatorship of Helena Heukeshoven. The event brings together renowned and emerging artists from both countries that exhibit their creations and offer them in exchange for goods or services. Upon entering the exhibition, visitors receive a small Post-it block. Those interested in a work of art leave a note with their proposal of goods or services that are willing to offer in return. At the end of the exhibition, the artist chooses the best offer to exchange for his or her work.

The exhibition will be held in a sector of Mercado de los Carruajes, an historic building located in the heart of the City of Buenos Aires, which was formerly used to house the horses that pulled the presidential carriages, converting this old presidential garage into a vibrant space of art, culture and integration. In a short time this "presidential garage" will be transformed into a gourmet market, in the style of La Boqueria in Barcelona, ​​the Borough Market of London, Chelsea Market in Manhattan or San Miguel de Madrid.
