What is Art Exchange?

 

– A presentation of work from some of the most remarkable contemporary performance artists.

– A devoted research on the potential of the human body and its power of expression.

– A virtual space where differences and diversities are produced and celebrated.

– A possible answer to the unresolved dilemma of documenting a live performance.

– An anthropological study of a community of artists practicing Performance Art.

– An ever-growing online gallery and archive of Manuel Vason‘s collaborations.

– A superficially complete photographic essay.

 

 

The objective of calling this website Art Exchange is to emphasise on the collaborative nature of each image/action presented here. Each image is an artwork equally shared between Manuel Vason and the artist-collaborator-performer.

Since 1999 Manuel Vason has been working closely with contemporary practitioners to create distinctive photographic actions/images. These images have been created in the spirit of exchange and have sought new ways to express the liveness of the photographic act.
