Stephanie Syjuco (2010) Shadowshop, installation view SFMOMA

Shadowshop is a project by Stephanie Syjuco and part of the exhibition “The More Things Change,” commissioned by SFMOMA’s Education Department and Live Art Program. Open November 20, 2010 – May 1, 2011. For more info, visit the main site: http://www.shadowshop.org

The website says the shop displayed over 200 Bay Area ‘artist’s wares’ for sale. Oh no you can’t call it art! Why not exactly? But great that the ‘local’ artists get a way in without one of those silly money spinning ‘open’ exhibitions. “Support local creative capital!” indeed. Still a great project that could be linked to the garage sale by Martha Rosler
http://www.e-flux.com/announcements/martha-rosler-london-garage-sale/  or the pawn shop by e-flux. There is also a video on YTube called ‘Beyond Institutional Critique’. She talks about seeing this as a symbiotic relationship. Exactly my point of view. But how is this ‘beyond’ Institutional Critique?
