ATM Cigarettes Flowers Lottery / God Bless Deli 2
ATM Cigarettes Flowers Lottery / God Bless Deli 2 explores the dynamic of the bodega aesthetically and theoretically. Each bodega takes on the unique form and identity of its owners, employees, customers, and surrounding neighborhoods, resulting in a bodega is as rich and culturally diverse as it's visitors. The artists involved take a variety of approaches to the theme; some consider the formal and tactile relationships with the bodega itself, while others look at the changing socio-economic landscapes of New York City, and the shift that that gentrification implies for locally-owned bodegas.
Please join us on opening night at two Brooklyn galleries: Wayfarers Gallery and Space Heater Gallery. An interactive scavenger hunt will take place on opening night, leading visitors through bodegas on a search for artwork, as they walk from one gallery to the other.
