What Price Art?

  • Cultivate Gallery Vyner Street London, England, E2 9DG United Kingdom (map)

Nicola Anthony takes part in 'What Price Art?', showcasing her Ha'Dollar series.

"Cultivate, Vyner St London: Opening night, Thurs 15th Sept, 6pm – 9pm, then 11.30am – 6pm Fri 16th- Sun 18th Sept. See Facebook event

Visit the exciting new Vyner Street space this weekend, a ‘social art experiment’ where you get to choose the price of the art you want to buy. In the words of the project director, Sean Worrall:

What Price Art? is about exactly that – gallery prices, the way things work, the vulnerability of the working artist in terms of survival, in terms of paying the bills, in terms of the way things work with galleries. The show is about the pricing of art, about art in galleries, about leaving art on the street, about street art, about the art dealers, the collectors, the price tag and people’s reactions to that tag, about how people interact with commercial art galleries. Who buys art? What is the point of a commercially run gallery?"

Ha'Dollar (part I) & (part II), 2011, Nicola Anthony.
