Performance Exchange is a dispersed platform for performance art in commercial galleries. The organisation aims to highlight the ways in which commercial galleries support artists whose practice is multi-disciplinary, yet might struggle to make the live and ephemeral elements of their work visible within the object-focused art market and acts as a catalyst for changing collecting structures so they can reflect individual artist’s practice as a holistic entity.
Museum Acquisitions create new audiences for artists and provide important long-term legacy for their practice. Through this acquisition programme, Performance Exchange also creates a cross-sector collaboration of the art market and museums, encouraging them to share knowledge and expertise towards their common goals of having as broad a spectrum of practices as possible being supported now, and understood in the future.
