Expect to see an influx of Brits and other non-New Yorkers in Bushwick this weekend for Exchange Rates, also known as The Bushwick Expo, an artist-driven gallery exchange and collaboration between Bushwick galleries and artist-run initiatives from Europe and the Pacific Northwest. Conceived by Stephanie Theodore, Paul D’Agostino and Sluice_, Exchange Rates exhibitions will be on view through Sunday afternoon. Norte Maar has organized a special edition of Beat Night, which means galleries will be open on Friday night from 6-10. I’ve got a few pieces on view in a terrific group show at Theodore:Art, where SEASON (Seattle, WA) and Blackwater Polytechnic (Essex, UK) will also be presenting work by their out-of-town artists. SEASON founder Robert Yoder is also presenting his own work at Schema Projects, where Platform, another great Seattle gallery, is curating. For a full list of participating galleries and artists from home and abroad, click here.
UPDATE: Read “Making Cents of Exchange Rates Bushwick,” Ben Sutton’s report on Exchange Rates for Hyperallergic.
