JJ Peet, Barter_Station

January 24th, 2014

Artist JJ PEET considers his making of aPROXY_CUP a transfer of his life-form into a functional ceramic vessel.

On the opening of his exhibition BRAIN to HAND to OBJECT_, come negotiate with the artist to exchange your precious life-form for one of these rare cups he assesses as ideal for you.

An alternative economy, JJ PEET’s BARTER_STATION may accept services or goods or may instead take the liberty to refuse your offer. What could you bring to the table?

BARTER_STATION will also take place Saturday, January 24, from 2–3P at the Gatehouse Gallery at the Betty and Edward Marcus Sculpture Garden at Laguna Gloria following Artists in Conversation: Tom Sachs and JJ PEETat 1P.

Celebrate the opening of Tom Sachs: Boombox Retrospective 1999-2015 at The Contemporary Austin with live music on the Roof Deck by DJ Mel, light bites and drinks, and a special appearance by artist JJ PEET’s participatory BARTER_STATION from 6-7P.
