The Economy of the Gift
9 April – 22 May 2010, Preview 8 April 2010

The Economyof the Gift offers a unique experience for contemporary collectors in search of a boutique scaled art fair. It will present eight artists and eight galleries curated by Ticiana Correa and explore the idea of value in a time of market crisis.

Four English galleries from outside the London Orbital were asked to select four international partners. Participants then select an artist represented by their partner. In this process a discourse is created at which the concept of the gift is at the heart of the exchange.

Installation Volunteers Required

This is a fantastic opportunity to work alongside an international artist to assist in the production of a large installation at the A Foundation. Jacob Dahlgren will be producing a large floor based installation consisting of a range of locally sourced materials. A workshop will be set up within A Foundation where his assistants will be sourcing materials, painting, cutting wood, building cubes and preparing materials for installation. Training will be provided by the artist and volunteers will be working as part of a team of artists and technicians.

Ideally volunteers would be able to commit to work between 4-5 days a week throughout March. All volunteers will be given a limited edition signed print by the artist and expenses will be covered.
