For the second installment of Exchange Rates, the Bushwick International Exposition developed and produced by Sluice_, Centotto and Theodore:Art, BFP Creative hosted six visiting galleries in Brooklyn Fire Proof's Temporary Storage galleries:
Campbell Works, London, UK
Collar, Manchester, UK
Epodium, Munich, Germany
Gallery North, Newcastle, UK
MADE, New York, NY
Vacuous, London, UK
SMALL GALLERY - 104
Gallery North and Campbell Works created an integrated installation of their two galleries' proposals. Campbell Works' "exchange," as they described their project for the expo, was a comedic replication of English weather complete with dangling umbrellas, fog and wind (image to the left). Gallery North's project website is here, Feeling Safer, Bugging Out.

LARGE GALLERY - 105
MADE presented "The Heist," curated to tease and seduce, while perpetuating a disarming and delightful brain twist, with work by Steve DeFrank and Laurel Farrin. In addition, they featured smaller work from their “not-so-flat files” by Nancy Baker, Janice Caswell, Alex Paik, and Nicolas Touron.
Collar installed mixed-media pieces (left).
