"SHOP: like you mean it!"
September 8th - Oct. 9th.
Underline Gallery (aka PJS Exhibitions)
Curated by Jennifer Minniti
Opening September 8th, 6-9 pm in conjunction with Fashion's Night Out
SHOP is a place that celebrates the making and provides an antidote to the banality of the mass-produced and fast-fashion distribution. In a time of unprecedented access to information, new ideas, materials and technologies, artists and designers have the power to transcend the mundane and to offer the new and the novel as contemporary culture makers. SHOP aims to shift consumer culture by engaging the customer in a spirited shopping experience: one that is rooted in the creative process and resurrects an awareness of the product and the purchase. SHOP offers a range of artist editions in limited production to coincide with a month resonating fashion in New York City.
Artists include Libby Black and Serena Cole.Underline Gallery
