Transitory Art at Drake General Store

April 1, 2011 - April 30, 2011

Through the month of April at the West Queen West Drake General Store, see art, advertising and consumer culture intersect in TRANSITory Art, an exhibition of privately collected, limited edition shopping bags by Andy Warhol, Yoko Ono, Klaus Staeck, Barbara Kruger, Richard Prince, Ben Vautier and Maurizio Nannucci. In examining the fine line between practical object and fine art piece, curators Jennifer Winter and Laura Bydlowska ask you to consider how these never-before-exhibited bags function as works of art and how they challenge the distinction between consumer and collector.
