Museum of Contemporary Rubbish Exchange (2010) Contents May Vary's Barnaby Art Market, Macclesfield Barnaby Festival 2010 Sunday 20th June 2010
The Museum of Contemporary Rubbish invited visitors to Barnaby Art Market to donate their rubbish to the museum collection in exchange for either a brown paper bag or a small card box. Alice's role as museum curator is to acquire, catalogue and archive each item and maintain the museum collection.
For the Barnaby Festival 2010, Contents May Vary invited artists, collectives and zine makers to set up stall in Contents May Vary's Barnaby Art Market. Following on from 2009's successful ANTIFREEZE in Manchester, 2010's alternative contemporary art fair continues to explore ideas of value, exchange and independence, now responding to physical, social, economical, geographical and literal aspects at Macclesfield Market.
