Another Pop Up
A pop-up shop by Handjob Gallery
February 21–27, 2014
We present the first collaboration with HANDJOB Gallery // Store launching a Pop-Up Shop for a week at AMO Studios. The pop-up shop will include 'functional' objects handmade by contemporary artists for the daily use and enrichment of YOUR life.
HANDJOB Gallery//Store hosts a selection of works by contemporary artists, whose job is to produce, by hand, an edition of 5-10 objects, which are by the artist’s own definition ‘functional’. The fields of Art and Design have been largely divorced in terms of functionality; Art is non-functional, and Design or Craft is strictly functional. By inviting artists to create functional objects, HANDJOB creates a space between Art, Design, and Craft. HANDJOB supports dialogue between the artist, the designer, the producer and the consumer, towards the production of more interesting objects and a richer everyday aesthetic.
HANDJOB Gallery//Store exists both virtually as an online store/gallery, as occasional pop-up-shops throughout NYC and as a storefront space at 99¢ Plus in Bushwick.
