ARTIST/COLLECTOR EXCHANGE acts as a connector between artists while forming a permanent collection at the Freies Museum. Artists both donate a piece to the museum's collection and become collectors of each other's work. How does this new role as collector influence the artist's gaze?
Friday, the 1st of June 2012, 7 pm - 12 pm at the FREIES MUSEUM
We’d like to invite you to the official Artist Collector Exchange (ACE) Fundraising Event, GOLD!
ACE is a collaborative series of artist salons in collaboration with the Freies Museum Berlin which was initiated by Alexine Chanel in September 2011.
Within the ACE project, artists expand their creative communities, discuss their practices and exchange their works of art, while simultaneously building their own art collections. The ACE Salons were held monthly for more than half a year and the outcome of these afternoons will be on display in a group exhibition in September at the Freies Museum. In addition to the exhibition ACE will be producing a catalogue featuring all of the participating ACE artists. To help finance the catalogue we are having a fabulous fundraising event on the 1st of June at the Freies Museum, entitled GOLD!
This evening will be all about drinks and performances, art and music, and food and friends. And Gold of course.
So slip into your golden tights, gowns, and bling!
We’d be delighted to see you there!
