An Evening Panel Discussion with Gracie Mansion & Friends

Tuesday night treat yourself to a talk with the iconic Gracie Mansion, whose gallery changed the face of pop art and graffiti in the 1980s, along with Carlo McCormick, Marilyn Minter, Walter Robinson and Sur Rodney (Sur).


The Soul Has Bandaged Moments: Re/collecting the East Village Art Scene, an evening of discussion with Gracie Mansion, subject of The Gift Shop’s first Shelf Life series, on April 12 from 7-9PM.

RSVP here:

Mansion, founder of the Gracie Mansion Gallery and seminal figure in the 1980’s East Village art scene, will be joined by her friends and contemporaries Carlo McCormick, Marilyn Minter, Walter Robinson and Sur Rodney (Sur), as they discuss the era and specific works from her personal collection on view in Shelf Life: Series One. The talk will be moderated by Dr. Yasmin Ramirez, Adjunct Curator at The Bronx Museum of the Arts.

Shelf Life is a rotating, micro-exhibition series that presents an intimate glimpse into the lives of fascinating people by presenting a cross section of their most coveted objects and treasured possessions. Set within the context of The Gift Shop—which features an array of books, objects and apparel commissioned exclusively from a variety of emerging and established artists—Shelf Life blends the personal and the commercial, suggesting new relationships between objects and their owners. Available for purchase at The Gift Shop throughout the duration of this exhibition are replicas of the jumpsuits worn by Mike Howard and Buster Cleveland in the 1985 issue of People Magazine’s “25 Most Intriguing People of the Year.”

Available until May 15 are a selection of pre-released copies of A Book About Colab (and Related Activities), edited by Max Schumann, Director of Printed Matter. The publication serves as an homage to Collaborative Projects Inc. (aka Colab), the New York downtown artist community active from the late 70’s to mid 80’s.
