Not sure how to create an ATC? Most swaps, or in this case-exhibits, are open to any media, materials or techniques as long as the card fits into a standard trading card sleeve. ATCs are normally created to be
traded, not sold. However, artists intended to sell them refer to theirs as Art Card Editions and Originals (ACEO). For the purpose of this exhibit, all cards will be offered for sale and all remaining cards will be traded amongst the artists.
How did the movement start?
In 1997, M. Vanci Stirnemann, a Swiss artist, created 1200 cards by hand as part of an exhibit. On the last day, he invited others to create their own cards and trade with him during the closing reception. The movement took off, and today, there are ATC swaps in almost every major city around the world. There are also many online swaps.
