Exchange Art for Art

Art Trade Fair Fitax 500

2 Dec 2012

The Tupajumi foundation teamed up with Mediamatic to organize the eleventh FITAX edition taking place in Europe, offering an alternative way of wheeling and dealing art in Amsterdam. The goal of the event was the direct exchange of artworks (worth approximately €500) between collectors and artists, or among artists without any money. You could register on Tupajumi's website.
