Cleopatra’s: Trade Secrets Week 3

Alison Walsh.

Cleopatra’s: Trade Secrets is an exhibition at John Connelly Presents in New York for which a daily trade occurs whereby an artist invited by Cleaopatra’s, a collaborative group based in Brooklyn, swaps a piece in the gallery for one of theirs. The show’s premise presents an alternative approach to value systems, gift and free market economy and results in a show that is constantly changing. Works are for sale, but visitors have only a fleeting opportunity to purchase them as their availability ceases upon their removal from the space. Documenting this exhibition as only an online publication can we are pleased to present photographs and logs from the third week of this show.
