The Shop: Summer Blowout @Silverman Gallery (Friday)
"Summer! Always a fabulous time to stop by one of the city's finest
galleries for a pop-up shop of merchandise made by artists. While many
of us have been selling our plasma to make the rent lately, that's all
the more reason to seek some kind of inspiration in the art gems on
fabulous stuff-buying is informed in part by the spirit of the original
Fluxus movement -- a network of artists, composers, and designers in the
'60s who brought their creations together for humorous events, poking
fun at the seriousness of modern art. With that in mind, more than 20
featured artists show work that explores art vs. commerce. Alongside
pieces by portrait photographer Ari Marcopolous, zine editor and Mr.
Lady Records owner Tammy Rae Carland, and Yuval Pudik, the shop has
records, limited-edition publications, and other marvelous baubles
brought into being by local and international talents." Evan James (Free, 7-10 p.m.)
