August 7-29, 2009

Silverman Gallery is pleased to present THE SHOP: Summer Blow Out, a curated exhibition/ pop up shop featuring artist editions, prints and other ephemera. In the spirit of Fluxus, DIY and punk, THE SHOP explores the ongoing dialogue between printed culture and artistic production, tracing the ways in which self-produced multiples blur the divide between art and commerce. The featured works—alongside limited edition publications, records, CD’s and specially produced zines—question the nature of aesthetic access and dissemination, while expanding the practice of “collecting.” The exhibition will coincide with the launch of The Shop, the gallery’s new online store committed to the support and distribution of artist produced ephemera and rare publications.

Featured works, editions and artists books by Terence Koh, Ari Marcopolous, Bozidar Brazda, John Baldessari, Dash Snow, Matt Keegan, Kathryn Garcia & Richard Lidinsky, Ryan Foerster, Matt Furie, Joseph Akel, Malik Gaines & Alexandro Segade, BLAND, Christina McPhee, Job Piston, Arnold J. Kemp, Hanni El Khatib, Tammy Rae Carland, Aaron Krach, Luke Fishbeck, Marc Arthur, Neil Ledoux, Susan Silton, Yuval Pudik and many more!
