Artist JJ PEET considers his making of a PROXY_CUP a transfer of his life-form into a functional ceramic vessel.

On the opening of his exhibition JJ PEET: BRAIN to HAND to OBJECT_ and following Artists in Conversation: Tom Sachs and JJ PEET, come negotiate with PEET to exchange your precious life-form for one of these rare cups he assesses as ideal for you.

An alternative economy, JJ PEET’s BARTER_STATION may accept services or goods or may instead take the liberty to refuse your offer. What could you bring to the table?

BARTER_STATION will also take place Friday, January 23, from 6–7P at the Jones Center as part of the preview and opening reception for Tom Sachs: Boombox Retrospective 1999–2015 and JJ PEET: BRAIN to HAND to OBJECT_.
