Pop-up shows: have you ever been in one?

I was invited to participate in my first pop-up show last year. I wasn’t sure what to expect of the experience but I have to say that I liked it. There is a joyfulness and ease that results from the temporary nature of the show. Somehow, the pop-up avoids the gravitas, pomp and ceremony of some more traditional, month-long gallery shows. Yes, as an artist, the cost of preparing your work and the effort to get it to the gallery is the same. Yes, a lot of hard work is required to improve a space that has often been empty and unused for a long time. But – you get to see an empty storefront transformed: filled with art and people. I am happy to share that I have been invited to participate in another pop-up this month: small file of Blink poster
