The Exchange Series project is a dialogue between
shopkeepers and designers through 8 small interventions
into the landscape of Dalston's main high street.
8 artists and designers have created bespoke works
within 8 host shops, exploring the conditions of place,
space, ownership and audience. Each installation responds
to its context as a site for display but also considers its
commercial function, recognising it as a cultural
space with an established local identity.
Each collaboration represents the coming together of two
different work practices – an interaction between retail and
design, between service and artwork - that is situated
in time and place from 2011 to 2012, on Kingsland Road,
Kingsland High Street and Stoke Newington Road.
