Antonio Puri created a barter marketplace for artists called Art4Barter. He has organized at least 12 editions of the market/exhibition all over the world. Puri, who lives in Philadelphia, and shows his work many places around the world, believes that an artist should have affiliations with around 15 galleries in order to “make it” financially.
