With whom do artists trade their work? How do these exchanges come about? What is chosen in these moments of reciprocity? The exhibition Trade Ya! offers possible answers to these questions by celebrating some of the various forms artists’ trades can take and, ultimately, how important this act can be.
The span of these relationships centers on an understanding of the importance of sharing and upholding a creative life within a larger community. The featured artworks range from exchanges between fellow peers to students and professors. The unique space of trades also allows for various media and scales to correspond: bronze and monotypes, concrete and painting. Ultimately, these artist’s trades act as a way to sustain and support the shared pursuit and need for art in life.
