Mom & Popism

mom1Gawker Artists is currently presenting “Mom & Popism”, an exhibition curated by Billi Kid reinterpreting James and Karla Murray’s latest book, “Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York”. The book features photographs by James and Karla Murray, that depict the unique storefronts that have defined the urban landscape in New York’s many neighborhoods, but are slowly disappearing. the exhibit features images from the book, reproduced at near life-size scale on the rooftop of Gawker Media. these images then became canvases for some of the most notable street artists from around the world, who each left their own artistic mark. the result is an impression of New York that is slowly fading, calling into question the cultural and economic landscape as well as the role of art. The show will only be open to the public on August 15th, but additional exhibition viewings are available by appointment though august.
