DESCRIPTION

An exhibition examining how museums and cultural institutions, fueled through private funding, have adopted a system and tradition of celebrating donors to the extent that every single public space (physical or digital; temporary or permanent) can eventually be named. No Shame: Storefront for Sale is an exhibition that guides visitors through a critical history of funding for cultural production, and imagines a scenario of total commodification, where every corner of Storefront -- from office chairs to the Director’s title to the air between its panels to the noise of a 5pm Friday traffic jam -- is for Sale. Artists include: Cyril Duval, Fake Industries (Urtzi Grau+Cristina Goberna), Jesse Helbo, Christine Hill, Playlab+Family, Luis Urculo, Softlab+Natasha Jen, among others.
