Preface to 1996 catalogue for Exchange Values

“Shelley Sacks’ EXCHANGE VALUES: Images of Invisible Lives is one of the more remarkable projects with which The Bonington Gallery has involved itself. The result of deeply held political commitments are fired by a passionate desire to overcome social inequalities, EXHANGE VALUES manages, nevertheless, to avoid the merely didactic and, more impressive still, to transcend the simply polemic…”
