Art in installments

19 Nov

Two ideas I particularly loved this week :

Own Art is the Arts Council scheme which enables you to pay in 10 slices for an artwork up to £2000 from participating galleries and organisations.

Or better still, perhaps, if you have appealing goods or services to offer, you can barter for art by some exceedingly well known artists at the upcoming ArtBarter. Since I can’t tailor a custom suit – one idea proposed by the organisers – what do I have to offer Tracey Emin? I could manage some cleaning…
