Art Barter – the platform for free exhange between artists and the public – is holding an art-swapping event from the 27th to the 29th of November. Usual suspects like Gary Hume, Tracy Emin and Gavin Turk are amongst the artists who have work on offer, as well as a list of bright young things.

In curator Lauren Jones’ words:
“We want to make art available to a more diverse crowd, not just people with disposable income. ArtBarter is the perfect setting to make this happen, whilst also providing a fun way to get people involved with the arts.”

Great concept! The event will be held at the Rag Factory in east London, the former studio of Tracey Emin and Gary Hume. Sponsor Green&Black’s will be showcasing a piece of ‘Chocol’art’ made by Sir Peter Blake.

Don’t forget to bring something. Who knows, you might be able to swap your fancy bike, web design skills or hairdressing talent for a piece of art!
