More in ShopArt



3 October - 20 December

55 years on from Warhol‘s ‘American Supermarket’, and inspired by Duchamp‘s assertion that art is a commodity (and that a commodity can be art), Velorose and Plinth have teamed up to co-curate an exhibition of multiples and individual works, ShopArt. Against a musical backdrop (The Pet Shop Boys’ PopArt), immerse yourself in this A/W 2019 collection, browse and acquire. Unexpected juxtapositions and the surprisingly familiar present themselves in this fascinating investigation of a taboo of the art world (Art = Money), and – naturally – all works are for sale. Don’t miss out on flash sales, pop-up events, special appearances and an ever-changing selection of artworks by Richard Wentworth, Bella Freud, Fiona Banner, Gillian Wearing and others. Why Exit Through the Gift Shop when Velorose and Plinth are exhibiting in a gift shop, and you can shop in an exhibition?

During the course of this exhibition, we’ll be hosting a book launch, flash sales, special ticketed events and workshops. We’ll be stocking specially-made and functional edition artworks, and more!
