Andy Bauch — New Money — Los Angeles, USA — 23-25 MAR 2018
Castelli Art Space, 5428 W. Washington Blvd.
What is the value of art? And for that matter, what is the value of money? With cryptocurrency values on an up and down rollercoaster and arthouse auction sales breaking records, the answer to these questions have never been more uncertain. In Bauch’s NEW MONEY, he’s embedded Bitcoin keys into his artworks, the price of each piece fluctuating in tandem with the ever-shifting cryptocurrency market. And that’s just assuming a clever viewer doesn’t reverse-engineer the Bitcoin pattern embedded in each piece and use it to empty out the digital wallet of its value.
