Curated by Samu Cortez, Trueque Pt. I showcases the work of eight artists from the Bay Area and Mexico to imagine reciprocal systems of exchange beyond the lens of our current capitalist paradigm.

Oftentimes, when we think about exchange, we think about an equal monetary trade for goods. But what are the implications when exchange happens without following the guidelines of that system? What happens, when alternatively, there is an exchange of memories, cultures, feelings, shared knowledge, or physical goods with others?

In Spanish, Trueque means "the non-capitalist exchange of goods or an exchange beyond currency." This exhibition focuses on the capacity of exchange outside of a capitalist system to create new and shared ideas, as well as shared collective spaces. Inspired by the guidelines of the artist collective Aguas Migrantes, Trueque will highlight the production of this alternative system through the lens of artistic practices by Latinx and immigrant artists both here in the Bay Area and in Mexico.

Trueque Pt. I will be on view in our online gallery from January 7 - 25, 2021 and paves the way for Trueque Pt. II which will explore exchange across boundary and border, in real time and space, coming in 2022.
