Artist Stephanie Styjuco http://www.stephaniesyjuco.com/ is responsible for this wonderful project:
Open to the public November 20, 2010, at SFMOMA
“A temporary and alternative store/distribution point embedded within the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s fifth floor galleries, Shadowshop will stock hundreds of artists’ multiples, small works, tchotchkes, catalogs, books, zines, media works, and other distributive creative output.
While operating as an actual mom-and-pop style store, Shadowshop is also a platform for exploring the ways in which artists are navigating the production, consumption, and dissemination of their work. Four themes (1. artwork-as-commodity, 2. cultural souvenirs, 3. bootlegs and counterfeits, and 4.alternative distribution systems) will contextualize selected projects that are both complicit with and also critical of capitalist circulation. Special projects will be commissioned by Packard Jennings, Juan Luna-Avin, and Imin Yeh.”
I made hand cut “Signature Collectibles Be A collector! Its not how you write your name its who’s name you write” ( my friend Chad Lott http://chadfred.blogspot.com/ is a copy writer and he came up with that for me.)
Sadly these photos are not too great.
