Exchange Rate features artists who incorporate currency in their work as material and subject matter. Playing on the location of GAC’s home in the 1878 First National Bank Building and The Strand’s history as the “Wall Street of the South”, the artists in the exhibition address commercial systems of trade, value and labor represented in paper, metal, plastic, and digital media. Addressing personal relationships to currency and the exchange goods, services, and the accumulation of wealth, worth, and value, this exhibition aims to give insights into the work of artists connected to the region who each take individual approaches to address this medium of exchange in their work.
