Everything Must Go: Art and the Market

Everything Must Go explores the relationship between contemporary art and economics and the ways in which monetary and art historical value are determined

Artists: Lida Abdul, Karmelo Bermejo, Walead Beshty, Victor Burgin, Colin Darke, Eric Fischl, Meschac Gaba, Antonia Hirsch, Kathi Hofer, Suzanne Mooney, Ni Haifeng, Raqs Media Collective, Amie Siegel, and Christopher Williams Curated by Chris Clarke and Declan Jordan in association with the School of Economics, UCC Everything Must Go explores the relationship between contemporary art, economics and value. Featuring works by Irish and international artists, the exhibition emphasises the ways in which monetary and historical value accrues through qualities that might appear peripheral to the artwork itself: context and display, provenance and ownership, reputation and rarity.
