'Bright 3: The Currency of Art: A Collaboration Between the Baring Archive and the Graduate School of CCW' is the 3rd in our Graduate School series of Bright publications.
In 1995, ING acquired the business of Barings plc, after Barings became insolvent as a result of unauthorized trading. Along with the acquisition of the company came a collection of archival material relating to the long history of Barings, whose origins stretch back to 1717 when John Baring of Bremen settled in Exeter and set
up business as a merchant and manufacturer. The Currency of Art celebrates the current phase of the
collaboration [with CCW Graduate School] and looks towards its potential developments. It should be seen as a catalyst to provoke debate across the arts, curatorial practice, finance and banking about the values underpinning these relationships as they were formed in the past, and as an invitation to speculate about their possible shape in the future.
