3:49 PM Sandra Gutrejde 0 Comments

ART&SWAP is the art exhibition where works are exchanged for goods or services. This year's exhibition, called Ciudad Natural will be held from May 17th to May 19th, 2019 at MARQ (Museo de Arquitectura de Buenos Aires - Av. del Libertador 999 @ Callao), with a selection of artworks by Argentinian and Belgian artists, combinming art, nature and architecture.

This original event comes from Brussels, Belgium. 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.
