About


TRANSFER Data Trust is a decentralized artist-owned archive and cooperative value exchange network.

The Data Trust is a milestone development in TRANSFER’s decade-long journey. In 2023 we announced we’re pausing our gallery program to reflect on the distant early warnings from our artists, by establishing a decentralized archive backed by a trust holding artworks from our 85+ international exhibitions. This speculative design project is focused around building an automated, non-profit cooperative trust model that integrates the perpetual purpose artist trust with cooperative organizational structures.

The experiment is backed by modern technological practices such as encryption (smart contracts) and decentralized storage to facilitate efficient management and accrue value in a new way for experimental media artists. This shift in the gallery’s operations represents an ‘Exit to Community’.
