Trade – to exchange, Fare – the cost to participate, and Social – relating to/interacting with, encompasses the ethos of this group exhibition comprised of kelli rae adams, Melissa Bouwman, the Institute 4 Labor Generosity Workers & Uniforms, and Mark Rumsey.

This event and exhibition is supported by the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles.
