mom & popism
presented by gawker artists
210 elizabeth street, new york
august 15, 2009 and by appointment through august

gawker artists is currently presenting mom & popism, an exhibition curated by billi kid reinterpreting
james and karla murray’s latest book, store front: the disappearing face of new york. the book features
photographs by james and karla murray, that depict the unique storefronts that have defined the urban
landscape in new york’s many neighborhoods, but are slowly disappearing. the exhibit features images
from the book, reproduced at near life-size scale on the rooftop of gawker media. these images then
became canvases for some of the most notable street artists from around the world, who each left their
own artistic mark. the result is an impression of new york that is slowly fading, calling into question the
cultural and economic landscape as well as the role of art. the show will only be open to the public on
august 15th, but additional exhibition viewings are available by appointment though august.
