Initiated by CONA Foundation
In collaboration with Mumbai Art Room
Bartered Collections is based on exchanges between artists. The project draws its lineage from an unwritten history of artist exchanges and reinserts the age-old system of barter into our present day context. It began by inviting a group of artists into a temporarily closed system, to engage in intimate dialogues about their practices and undertake a series of negotiations towards trading their works. The process was brought into a wider and public context through the framework of an exhibition titled Len Den, which staged itself as a ground for further exchanges.
