(Excerpt from 'PopRally Presents: Meta-Monumental Pre-Game' posted on MoMa. Found on http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/events/16050)
PopRally is a program of events at The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 that features collaborations with artists and musical acts, performances, film screenings, receptions, and special viewings of exhibitions at moderate prices.
This November, Martha Rosler has her first solo exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, and PopRally wants you to get in on the action by donating items, from beloved knickknacks to no-longer-used odds and ends.
Rosler’s upcoming Meta-Monumental Garage Sale is a large-scale version of the classic American garage sale where Museum visitors can browse and buy second-hand goods that have been organized and displayed by the artist. The installation will fill MoMA’s Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium with strange and everyday objects donated by the artist, MoMA staff, and the general public, creating a lively space for exchange between Rosler and her customers as they haggle over prices.
