Artist run bookshop
The Exchange @ Brunswick East is an artist led project in an artist led space. The Exchange is a space which facilitates artists connecting with the general public though book or ‘bound’ form. We are seeking independently published works whether that be in the form of a book, comic, zine, essentially any works (written, visual or both!) that are bound, to feature within our coffee shop bookstore based in Dalston, London.
As well as housing works from early career artists our collection features work from artists whose publications may also be found in TATE Galleries London, Whitechapel gallery, V & A and MOMA New York.
The Exchange will facilitate the space, all artists will price their own work and retain all monies made from works. In exchange we ask for a donation of 1 x bound piece of work to add to our Library. The library will be a space within the coffee shop that will allow all members of the public and community to experience and share in art, free of cost and free from the restrictions that money can have regarding access to art & literature.
In support and celebration of artists that participate within The Exchange @ Brunswick East we will run a monthly exhibition/spoken word/readings/screenings. We will also have a supporting website on http://www.brunswickeast.london/the-exchange/ whereby all artists and books/bound work will be featured.
The collection of independently published works, which are featured as part of the library and also are available for sale, with all proceeds going directly to the artists and whilst artists are not charged any fees to display/sell through The Exchange. In addition the participating artists have the opportunity to host an event, relevant to their publication, in the space.
