Call for submissions: Das Tauschregal
A Project by Cynthia Daignault
Lisa Cooley is pleased to announce a call for submissions to Das Tauschregal (The Barter Shelf), a new participatory project by Cynthia Daignault. Das Tauschregal is the second in a series of offsite projects developed by Lisa Cooley and organized in collaboration with artists. The project will be exhibited in May 2014, in conjunction with Daignault’s presentation at Frieze New York.
Founded on the idea of participatory economics, Das Tauschregal is a barter exchange. Daignault will trade 25 paintings for 25 objects. Each painting will depict its traded item, exploring the relationship of a painting to the object it depicts and the capitol it represents. All are invited to participate by submitting an item for consideration, though only 25 will be selected for trading, as outlined in the project guidelines. Objects and paintings will be displayed publicly as part of the presentation of the artwork, set to open May 1st. Full details to follow at a later date.

Submissions must be received by April 1.
