The Currency Project

The Currency Project is a conceptual art piece that explores value creation and value transfer.

Created and implemented by Abdul Mazid and Julian Lombardi in March 2020, The Currency Project seeks to use social engagement as a platform to explore contemporary theories surrounding currency, value and markets. By using tradeable sports cards as the basis for the project, Mazid and Lombardi are able to engage an economy and marketplace that already exists while exploring spaces surrounding art and the creative process.

The social practice element of the piece elicits engagement from the public through multiple platforms, social media, and through transactions. Ultimately, the project seeks to understand concepts surrounding currency as a form of transactional storage of value.
