MOM & POPism
MOM & POPism was an exhibition produced by Liz & Genevieve Dimmitt and curated by Billi Kid reinterpreting James and Karla Murray’s book, Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York, in collaboration with many well known graffiti and street artists. Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York is a breathtaking visual guide to New York City’s cultural heritage, with special emphasis on the historic streets and ethnic shops that have defined its many neighborhoods. Meticulously photographed, its powerful images of time-worn institutions were printed at close to life-size scale and installed on the Gawker Media roof, becoming canvases on which select graffiti and street artists were invited to leave their indelible marks. The result was a unique impression of a New York City that seems to be fading with each passing day. The collaborating graffiti and street artists represent some of the most notable artists in the street art community and the media at large: Blanco, Buildmore, Cake, Celso, Cern, Chris (RWK), Crome, Cycle, David Cooper, Destroy & Rebuild, Enamel Kingdom, Goldenstash, Infinity, Kngee, Lady Pink, Matt Siren, Morgan Thomas, Peru Ana Ana Peru, Plasma Slugs, Royce Bannon, Shai R. Dahan, Shiro, The Dude Company, Tikcy, Under Water Pirates, Veng (RWK), Zoltron and Billi Kid.
