Traded Works from the Personal Collection of Katherine Bernhardt
December 2020 - February 2021
TRADERS is a show about art trades—traded art. The exhibition displays a portion of a vibrant and growing collection of art that has come about through exchanges made by Katherine Bernhardt who offered pieces of her own art—often small paintings on canvas or works on paper—in exchange for these individual works. Bernhardt has traded with dozens of artists in order to amass her collection; and although a couple of pieces in the show are works that Bernhardt purchased or otherwise collected, all of the works have been acquired by Bernhardt as a cultural investment in a contemporary art collection. Exchanging art with fellow like-minded artists has
been an exciting way for both parties to acquire the sorts of art that they love.
