2021 Art Swap is BACK starting 28 June!

Our Art Swap is back!

The exhibition opens 28 June and closes 25 September

At DKUK, we support creative practices and artistic economies by training artists as hairdressers and commissioning exhibitions. We ran our art swap event last year with huge success.

The idea is simple: we will trade a haircut for an artwork.

The artwork will then be displayed at DKUK for the duration of the exhibition, and kept in our collection afterwards.

There is no brief, but we would appreciate work that you feel is right for the space. If we feel the work is inappropriate for the salon, we will honour the haircut but not accept the work.

Think about what’s special about DKUK – clients spend a long time here and have the chance to really absorb some ideas!

The T’s & C’s:
-We have one slot per day, and available appointments must be made in advance
-Our £3 covid surcharge will be paid at the time of booking to secure the appointment
-Please have the dimensions, title and medium of your work to hand when you come in
-The work will not be returned, it will be kept by DKUK as part of our collection
-The work must be wall based and fitted with a hanging device, or free standing and no taller than 30cm.
-Art swap haircuts can only be booked over the phone, and slots are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
– We are closed 1- 7 August so no booking will b taken between these dates
– No art swap slots are available on Saturdays
– Artist must be willing to have a photo taken with their work for our social media

Happy creating!
