About Exchange Rates.
Exchange Rates is an international exposition of artworks and art galleries in and around Bushwick. Conceived and produced by arts organizations helmed by artists and curators in Bushwick and London, UK, Exchange Rates—known also in this inaugural iteration as The Bushwick Expo—is an international exposition of artworks and curatorial programs in which host spaces in one art community open their doors and share their walls with kindred spaces on visit from elsewhere. It is an exposition, to wit. Not a fair.

Date of the exposition are October 23-26. Spaces will be open daily from 12-6pm. A special edition of Norte Maar’s Beat Nite will be held on Friday, October 24 from 6-10pm and will feature an after party at the new Vazquez, 10-12am.

Some exhibits will be integrated, some collaborative yet autonomous, some even spontaneous or virtual.

The rates of exchange, as such, will fluctuate, while the currencies of exchange—ideas and culture—remain fixed.

Shared spaces and cultural currencies. Currencies tangible and intangible.

Variable valuations of the same.

Visit one space to visit several.

Visit Bushwick to get a glimpse of aesthetic endeavors both here and in a dozen other cities.

Come to Exchange Rates for a creative breath of fresh air.

Beat Nite made its neighborhood debut in February 2009, featuring all of Bushwick’s alternative art spaces and galleries—at the time, only seven. The event grew into a biannual occurrence offering an awesome neighborhood-wide event that many have labeled “half art stroll, half bar crawl.” With over 50 galleries and alternative spaces now in Bushwick/Ridgewood, since 2012 a special guest curator has been invited to select just 10 spaces from the community’s many great offerings.
