Tate Liverpool Performance

The Shock Exchange: The Commodification of Value With Liverpool Hope University

Take part in an interactive art stock exchange and explore the value of creativity

How do we value artworks? Drop into this performance and become an imaginary art shareholder in the Shock Exchange. Pretend to buy, sell and trade your selected artwork from Tate Liverpool’s Constellations: Highlights from the Nation’s Collection of Modern Art display and watch its value rise and fall in response to the investments of others. 

This event is programmed by Liverpool Hope University, a Tate Exchange Liverpool Associate. It is presented by the Department of Dance, Drama and Performance Studies
