Template:Use British English oooh, orphan Art-Switch Exchange Limited is a social venture [1][2] founded in 2005 [3] in the East End of London in (Stratford). It provides an art library with an online art catalogue. It allows people to borrow artworks from Art-Switch's art library for up to three months. It also allows to buy art for a price based on popularity.[2]

Price model

For a lending fee of £1 a day[2][4] private clients and businesses can borrow any artwork in their art library and exchange as many times as they like – aiming at encouraging art literacy.[5]


The artist gets £1 a day every day the art is out and 75% of the sales prices. According to Rebecca Russell-Turner (an artist working with Art-Switch) the lending system provides the benefit of artworks "not stuck gathering dust somewhere in between exhibitions." [2]
