One of the art pieces that still stays in my mind from Art Basel Miami this year reminds me of the Target Bodega’s we produced for Target in New York City in 2008, and even more so, it reminds me of the truly fabulous show that was at Deitch Projects in 2000, “Street Market.”
The collective from Austin, Texas called Okay Mountain produced this “convenience store” and sold the items out of it during the show. I love the quirky hand-made-ness of the whole thing. My first reaction was that I wanted to buy it all, especially the motor oil. Then . . . I realized, photos were just fine.
But why do you think so many are fascinated by the corner store?
